DescriptionAdam Montandon has created a new device called "Eyeborg" that allows people with visual impairments, and even total blindness, to experience the world in colour. The inventor has built a system that hijacks Neil Harbissons other senses by allowing him to see colour through his ears. It works with a head mounted camera that reads the colours directly in front of a person, and converts them in real-time into sound waves. The producer claims that the eye-borg creates a new sensation, a cyborgian extension of the human perception system residing in both the brain and the hard-drive.
