Gamer Lacks Eyeballs, Kicks Ass Anyways

Kids sometimes like to gloat and say they will pwn you with their eyes closed, but this kid means it. After having his eyes surgically removed, he relearned how to do everything without the use of his vision, relying instead on echolocation. His television must have some pretty awesome surround sound then, because he is somehow able to play videogames without ever seeing the screen.

The story is too old to be commented.

Holy crap! That video is crazy. He's not even FACING the television. Wouldn't that screw up his sonar or whatever?

Nostradavis3613d ago

Sonar? What is he Aquaman?

Twizlex3613d ago

No, but I think his mom is related to Aquaman (so he would be too) because her name is Aquanetta. Seriously, what kind of name is that? Ha!

This is so old its unbelievable. I remember watching this guy on a documentary on tv 2 years ago ! But yeh this guy is amazing !

Twizlex3613d ago

This isn't old. Technically, this kid has been blind for like 15 years, so yeah, that's not new. This story is new, however, because it just went up today, for one, and for two, it's talking about how his cancer came back and that there's a website to help him.

Wow. That guy is incredible. I don't like to believe in this sort of stuff but if true then WOW. What an awesome kid

velaxun3613d ago

This kid is dope as F***

I saw him on Ellen before and they gave him a Wii before they even came out.

This is just an amazing example of the plasticity of the brain. Sometimes when one loses a sense such as sight, the brain is able to compensate for that loss of sense by enhancing another. Another example is to observe how blind judo athletes can use their kinestheitc sense to locate their adversary, amazing stuff!

He's the real Daredevil!!!

superflyguy3612d ago

He's pretty amazing. He's one of the few humans in the world who uses ecolocation.

I wonder if a Wii would be easier or harder for him to game on.

Timesplitter143613d ago

I wonder how it would change anything

Twizlex3613d ago

You don't think it would be any different? I would think some games would be a lot easier on the Wii.

n00bzRtehgey3613d ago

I agree. He should get a Wii.
