Neil Harbisson has had a special 'eyeborg' device implanted in to his skull that can interpret colors.
Despite having only ever viewed the world in black and white due to a rare form of color blindness, Harbisson has been able to perceive color using a special device that produces unique vibrations to represent the colors in whatever he is looking at.

I was a bit disappointed after the article title that a device helps him. Nevertheless electronics interacting with the human senses is the future (and amazing he has been using this for 10 years) for a lot of people with physical debilitations and eventually will eventually enhance the senses of the norm.
Unfortunately looking at the colour mismatch of his jacket and shirt I would guess the device does not work...

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.
