the real hero

When I first read about this guy I thought:

If you don’t get the references, the woman on the left is from Heroes. She is deaf but can see sound. The guy on the right is Cyborg, of the Teen Titans. Sadly, Neil Harbisson is not a real super hero. But, he is a legally titled cyborg! Born without the ability to see color, Neil was fitted with an “eyeborg” which allows him to hear color. He is a really talented photographer and painter. As well as a recognized composer/musician. I envy his talents. Anyways, here he is, click on his face to go to his website. Below is an article about him.

colour away!
