In psfk we found this cool article about a device that enables people to listen colours. "Our eyes differentiate colors by picking up on various light frequencies, but for people who are born with achromatopsia, color needs to be translated into sound before they can experience the vivid world around them. Christopher Yamen’s “Wasiliscope” is the newest device that lets people “hear” colors, representing modern technological improvements that are benefiting human cyborgs who are color-handicapped in life."

Calling all cyborgs! We've just found out about this event Human 2.0 - Technologies of Enhancement. It looks definitely interesting and it's happening next week. "Since the turn of the 20th Century human enhancements and augmentations have been increasingly aestheticised and fetishised by medium of Science Fiction. But only in the last two decades are we beginning to encounter tangible advances that could be leveraged towards the project of dramatically altering the human condition." Read more about it in CyberSalon website, buy tickets and if you're attending and want to share your experience with us, please do so!
