Check this guy out! A cyborg artist who can hear images and paint sounds

Neil Harbisson was born completely colour blind. Considering how he could transcend his condition, he decided to have an antenna surgically implanted into his skull which enabled him to 'hear' colour.

He is able to identify colours through a particular musical note – seeing colours outside of the human visual spectrum.
