The Many Shades of Turkey
The family is arriving, cars are pulling up and parking. The house is decorated, toasty warm and cheery. In the living room the early football game is on, and many will be popping into the room to ask the in-house sports experts in front of the flat screen for a score update.
This is the last of our 6 part series from our interview with Neil Harbisson, the first human cyborg. The camera attached to the antenna embedded in his skull identifies color using sound to compensate for his complete colorblindness. read more »
“Because I like it,” could be an answer to the question from the title of this blog series and it wouldn’t be any less valid than any other answer. In previous posts I tried to analyze what influences our color choices from without, from our cultural and social environment.

Neil Harbisson has never seen color. Born with achromatopsia he lives in a grayscale world. Technology has allowed him to detect color through sound. The camera on the end of the antenna permanently attached to his head reads the color frequencies of visible light and translates them into sound frequencies. But what this technology can detect does not have to be limited to visible light.
