Neil Harbisson is a cyborg artist who has an antenna implanted in his skull that enables him to perceive colors through vibrations. He spent an afternoon at a supermarket with music producer The Josh Craig on the hunt for nicely colored and sweet-sounding products. Together they made a song from the sounds of turquoise Ultra Downy and orange Tide.
