zooey deschanel gets stuck in lucy liu’s dress
This is the least surprising photo I’ve ever seen.
Is it wrong that I love how Lucy Liu is like ~this is not my problem~ ~I am a cyborg princess and this is beneath me~
That’s exactly what I’m thinking. There’s no reason for alien life on a completely different planet to look anything like us.
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.
Harbisson was born with a condition called achromatopsia, which means he sees everythingin shades of gray. It’s kind of like watching the world go by on a black-and-white monitor when everybody else has full color HD screens. He’s missing out on safety cues like the color of traffic lights, but more importantly he felt like he was missing an aesthetic sense of his environment. As an artist, he’s acutely aware of how aesthetics affect people’s moods and behavior — and so, nearly a decade ago, he set out to augment himself to see what other people see.
The result is that he sees in a way that nobody has seen before. His eyeborg attachment converts colors around him into soundwaves, which are transmitted to his inner ear via a vibration mechanism on the back of his skull. Essentially, Harbisson hears and feels colors:
"Each colour has a specific frequency that I can hear because of the Eyeborg. Infrared is the lowest sound and ultraviolet is the highest sound. I hear them through bone conduction. Basically, the sound goes to the back of the head and then my inner ear hears the different sine waves."
