Hearing every color, feeling every earthquake: Life as a cyborg
In the movies, cyborgs often don't have a soul or a conscience.
But in real life, some people become cyborgs in order to enhance the human experience and to be more connected with nature.
Like Neil Harbisson. He was born colorblind, but now, thanks to an antenna implanted into the base of his skull, he can hear colors!
And choreographer, Moon Ribas, had implants embedded in her feet that vibrated every time there was an earthquake of at least 1.0 on the Richter scale.
