This episode is about Cyborg, Technology, Artificial Senses, Science, Biology

Technology has become a fundamental part of our everyday life. Neil Harbisson, Co-Founder of the Cyborg Foundation, has moved one step further by actively becoming part of technology: He has an antenna implanted in his skull to overcome his color blindness and perceives the entire color spectrum from infrared to ultraviolet as vibrations in his head. In our conversation he tells us exactly how this works, what “Superpowers” other cyborgs already have and what will be possible in the future. He also explains the deeper purpose and benefits of these “Artificial Senses” and what positive effects they might have on humanity and our overall connection to our planet and other species.
