Echolocation – Seeing with sound!

Here’s the first 10 minutes of a documentary called Extraordinary People: The Boy Who Sees Without Eyes. It’s about Ben Underwood, a blind teenager from Sacramento who uses echolocation

Believe it or not – this documentary called “Extraordinary People” portraits a guy who uses echoes to determine the positions of objects, and began to develop a “six sense”. The video shows him, riding a bike, skateboard and playing computer games.

Whether that is a hoax, an urban legend or not. Here you can watch the rest of The Boy Who Sees Without Eyes on You Tube.
