Meet the world’s first cyborg

Jason Kottke talks about Neil Harbisson, the world’s first cyborg. Born with a rare condition that causes extreme colour blindness, Harbisson developed an implant that turns colours into sounds:

One day I started hearing colors in my dreams. Then I understood what being a cyborg meant. It’s not the union between the eyeborg and my head, what converts me into a cyborg, but the union between the software and my brain. My body and the technology have united. It’s very very human to modify one’s body with human creations.”
