Cyborg technology comes to life

NEW YORK, NY – Neil Harbisson was born colorblind, but now he doesn’t need to see color.  An antenna implanted in his head allows him to hear it.  Surgically implanted technology is improving Neil’s human ability.

“It’s feeling that you’re not using technology and that you’re not wearing technology, it’s feeling that you are technology,” Neil says.

It reads the frequencies of colors and converts them into sounds.

A cyborg of a different color.  This one will really get under your skin.

Amal Graafstra is developing radio frequency implant chips to unlock cars and houses.

“Essentially what I’ve done is taken an RFID implant and moved it from a pants pocket to a skin pocket,” Amal says.
