Episode 7 - Echolocation and Thought Controlled Computing

In this episode host Richard Syrett goes completely batty with echo-locater Daniel Kish. Blind since the age of 13 months Daniel has taught himself and countless others how to "echo-locate" using flash sonar techniques similar to bats and dolphins. He is a champion of self-directed discovery for blind children and a critic of those who don't "see" him as an equal.

We will also meet Ariel Garten. She is a Canadian artist, scientist, intellectual and the CEO of IntraXon, a tech company working in the field of thought-controlled computing. You may remember during the 2010 winter olympics in Vancouver people were controlling lights on the parliament building and CN Tower using their minds. Yep that was Ariels invention.
