Boy uses sound to see: "David Pescovitz:
People magazine profiles Ben Underwood, a blind 14-year-old who apparently uses echolocation to 'see.' Ben, sightless since the age of 3, makes loud clicking noises with his tongue and then listens for the echo. According to the article, he can not only detect distance but sometimes the material of an object based on how soft, dense, or sharp the echo is.
