Ever since he was born Lucas Murray has been unable to see.

But thanks to a technique using a form of sonar the seven-year-old can now visualise his surroundings for the very first time.

Id imagine you'd have to be blind first before you could even try to learn it.

Im sure i watched a documentary about a blind guy that did the same sonar thing, they did various tests with him, to see what he could sense, and what he couldn't. For example, they had a thin metal pole that he couldn't detect, but he had no trouble with walls and finding doorways etc. Was really interesting.
