12 13 Another way to improve… NEIL HARBISSON: THE WORLD’S FIRST CYBORG ARTIST He is best known for being the first person in the world with an antenna implanted in his skull and for being officially recognized as a cyborg by a government. THIS EXAMPLE IS DEFINITELY FOR THE BRAVEST AND THE STRONGEST! Neil Harbisson was born with achromatopsia, a rare form of colorblindness that causes him to see the world in grayscale. But since 2004, he’s experienced color as sound, first through a set of headphones, and shortly thereafter through subtle sonic vibrations transmitted through his skull. I hear ” different notes for different colors, so I ‘hear’ colors, from infrareds to ultraviolets. © Carlos Gonzalez
