Can anyone hear that picture

US scientists have discovered people who can “hear” what they see.

The rare form of synaesthesia – a condition where senses intermingle – came to light after a student reported “hearing sounds” from a screensaver.

Researchers at the California Institute of Technology then found three more people with the same condition, New Scientist magazine reported.

Those affected performed better in tests of recognising visual patterns than those without the condition.  – bbc

Check out the video on the BBC web site. I couldn’t hear anything when watching the moving dots.
