Neil Harbisson is a cyborg who hears more of the world than we see

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. He has been claimed to be the first recognized cyborg in the world, as his passport photo now includes his device.
