Daniel Kish has been blind since infancy.

Now 44, Kish mountain bikes, hikes through the wilderness solo and tackles food creations in the kitchen. He can even detect buildings and objects in the distance.

Kish "sees" with his ears, illuminating his world with sound. He describes the technique as "FlashSonar," which is similar to the way bats use sound do to navigate in darkness.

Watch how seeing with sound works below.

I've heard of this before; never actually saw "it" in action...

Very cool ability. Ya, when you lose one sense, the other senses become far more enhanced.
I imagine Hellen Keller had an outstanding sense of taste and smell.

I am curious though, if you did remove both hearing and sight, could you eventually smell the world around you enough to navigate through it.

Yeah, a few people have learned how to do this. It's very interesting indeed.

Its amazing how our senses will compensate for the loss of another.

Shouldn't that video be called "Real Life Dare Devil" though?
