Cyborg - The first human cyborg - A man that hears colour!
« on: January 24, 2013, 02:54:59 PM »
Neil Harbisson was born with achromatopsia, a rare condition that causes complete colour blindness.
In 2004, Harbisson and Adam Montandon developed the eyeborg, a device that translates colours into sounds.
Harbisson has been claimed to be the first recognized cyborg in the world, as his passport photo now includes his device.
In 2010, Neil Harbisson and Moon Ribas created the Cyborg Foundation, an international organization to help humans become cyborgs.
The foundation has also experimented with other sensory devices, including an “earborg,” which translates sound into color, and a “speedborg,” which allows people to detect movement through electronic earrings that vibrate.

Would you have technology embedded into your body to become a cyborg?
What features would you like to have?
