Blind boy learns how to 'see' using dolphin technique


www.telegraph.co.uk...

Jamie Aspland uses an 'echo location' technique, uttering high-pitch clicks with the sound then rebounding off surfaces to help guide him round obstacles.

The four-year-old, who was born without his sight, was taught the technique as part of a revolutionary new scheme in the US to help the blind.

How awesome!

Echo location used by the human senses to 'sense' objects within the immediate surrounding environment and sort of 'see with sound'.

I seem to recall watching a story not long ago of a teen-aged boy who could do the same thing. Perhaps this will become a new sort of 'super-sense' developed by humans?

Very fascinating IMHO...

Nothing special. All blind people do this more or less. Some just are really really good at it.
