Cybor Foundation - Short Film

CYBORG FOUNDATION is a Winner in the $200,000 FOCUS FORWARD Filmmaker Competition, and is vying for the $100,000 Grand Jury Prize, to be announced January 22 at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. 
Neil Harbisson was born with achromatopsia, a rare condition that causes complete colour blindness. In 2004, Harbisson and Adam Montandon developed the eyeborg, a device that translates colours into sounds.
Harbisson has been claimed to be the first recognized cyborg in the world, as his passport photo now includes his device. In 2010, Neil Harbisson and Moon Ribas created the Cyborg Foundation, an international organization to help humans become cyborgs. The foundation has also experimented with other sensory devices, including an “earborg,” which translates sound into color, and a “speedborg,” which allows people to detect movement through electronic earrings that vibrate.

Filma-T Produccions de Anna Moradell & Joan Figueras son dos amigos Barceloneses que han participado en este corto, imagen y sonido,  y van a competir en Sundance. 

Yo también quiero ser un cyborg....
