The Boy with Sonar Vision -

I think he is a Real Superhero!. This young guy really impress me:) Ben Underwoodtaught is blind, both of his eyes were removed (cancer) when he was 3. Yet, he plays basketball, rides on a bicycle, and lives a quite normal life. He taught himself to use echo location to navigate around the world. With no guide-dogs, he doesn't even need hands: he uses sound. Ben makes a short click sound that bounces back from objects. Amazingly, his ears pick up the ecos to let him know where the objects are. He's the only person in the world who sees using nothing but eco location, like a sonar or a dolphin.


  1. God gives him something special that ordinary people don't have. How wonderful is that!

    Have a great weekend Luthie!

  2. Hv a great weekend too Billy´s mom hehe..

  3. His senses are extra-ordinary. Unlike us normal beings, we take things for granted sometimes kan.

    The Singapore team that won the recent Amazing Race Asia (season 2) had one participant who was deaf. It wasn't a liability, instead it helped the team because he won the challenge and the fact the he is deaf, means less distraction for him.

    Fuh, panjang juga sia punya komen ni :)


Thanks for your comment, I´ll be back to you.
