Interviewed Neil Harbisson at work today so that he can be on the show soon. He was born colorblind and wears a machine called an eyeborg that perceives colors and translates them into sound. Color correspond to tones, and vice versa, so he paints songs and speeches and hears colors. He told me my voice is mostly blues and turquoises, but has some bursts of yellow and orange. Pretty awesome day at the office.

This is super interesting, and also this guy has an adorable attitude.
