25-04-201700:54:12

Keynote speaker Neil Harbisson, colorblind per se, can perceive colors thanks to an implanted antenna - and more than other people: He also "sees" infrared and ultraviolet. He is the world's first recognized cyborg and believes we should all artificially "enhance ourselves."

PANEL: Florian Gschwandtner / Runtastic, Gerd Leonhard / Humanist & Futurist, Renée Schröder / Biochemist
