A guy in my anatomy class told me about this. Blind people making clicking sounds like bats to see stuff.


Pretty old methinks but still interesting, methinks.

Imagine being told by a blind man that your eyes are too far apart

taken from stan lee's super humans episode 1 (couldn't find a vid on youtube, sry).
Quote :
Totally blind from birth, Juan Ruiz apparently visualizes the world using the same form of sonar used by bats and dolphins called echolocation. Juan demonstrates his incredible ability to Daniel by navigating around a complex course using only the echoes of his tongue clicks to guide him.
this was cool to see in action. i had no idea that more people could do this thought, which makes me wonder how widespread the adaptation really is. if this really is common enough then i suppose the next step would be how to teach other people to do this for themselves. blindness cured! lul
