OriginsEdit

Neil Harbisson is known as an artist and cyborg. He has achromatopsia, a condition where his natural range of color perception is blacks, whites and grays. To counteract this, Harbisson became the first person to wear an eyeborg, a cybernetic attachment that lets a person perceive color through sound. When his passport needed to be renewed, he was denied the ability to be photographed with his eyeborg; it was later allowed. This was one of the early versions of the eyeborg.

EffectsEdit

The eyeborg lets the user view colors through sound, being useful to persons colorblind or with achromatopsia. However, after use, a non-colorblind person is only able to see in black, white and gray and a color vision impaired person having their condition turn back to normal.

TriviaEdit

  • The eyeborg was seen by Myka when her and Pete were being pelted by the Baylor Dodgeball, the eyeborg later being moved to the Health Section.
