The Science of Seeing with Sound.

Imagine being blind for 25 years, and suddenly being able to see again - using your ears. It sounds impossible, but that's exactly what's happened to Pat Fletcher. For the past few years, she's been experimenting with a revolutionary new technology that allows her to see through sound. Using a simple computer program that she downloaded from the Internet, which translates visual images into soundscapes, Pat's brain is able to translate those sounds back into images. Find out how in Alison Motluk's remarkable documentary, "See, If You Can Hear This."

Plus - Meet T-Rex - in the flesh...

That's Quirks & Quarks, Saturday right after the noon news on Radio One.
