Neil Harbisson: The man who hears colour

11 November 2014 Last updated at 09:01 GMT

Neil Harbisson is an artist who was born completely colour blind. His life changed when he decided to have an antenna surgically implanted into his skull that enabled him to "hear" colour.

Now he identifies each colour with a particular musical note - even the ones we can't see.

In 2010 he founded the Cyborg Foundation, an international organisation that helps others to permanently implant technology into their bodies.
