Amazing! I know it's not the same thing, but a friend of mine is colour blind and sometimes he will ask me what colour something is. At least he can relate visually to colours, unlike the guy in the video who's never been able to see any except in his mind. He did very well considering he's been blind from birth. The way he described the colour blue for example, sky, ocean, etc., wonderful how he can even do that. He's probably more alert to colours than most fully sighted people as we tend to take our surroundings for granted sometimes.
