  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Neil Harbisson is the first person on the planet to have a passport photo that shows his cyborg nature - in his UK passport, he's wearing a head-mounted device called an eyeborg. The color-blind artist says the eyeborg allows him to see color, and he wants to help other cyborgs like himself gain more rights.

  • If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

great technology, but could they not have made this within spectacles, or would this not give the same "look, I`m a cyborg wannabe" effect?
