7 Daniel Kish is blind but sees through echolocation
Have you ever seen a movie called “daredevil” the marvel superhero that although blind has superhuman senses of hearing and sees through sound? Similarly Daniel Kish blinded at 13 months also taught himself the art of bat –like echolocation where he produces a sharp click with his tongue and interprets the nature of the echo returning from it. Born with the condition of retinoblastoma, doctors removed both his eyeballs to save his life. Daniel started using echolocation from the age of two and can now detect buildings and structures 1000 feet away. He can detect a tree 30 feet away and a human being 6 feet away. Daniel Kish is also the president of WAFTB or World Access for the Blind, an organization he set up to teach echolocation to blind children.
