Neil Harbisson (born July 27, 1984) is a cyborg artist and transspecies rights campaigner who was born in Spain. He is most famous for becoming the world’s first person to have an antenna implanted in his head. Since 2004, he has been referred to be the world’s first legally recognized cyborg and the world’s first cyborg artist by international media. To communicate with him, his antenna sends loud vibrations through his skull. This includes electromagnetic radiation readings, phone calls, music, and films or images that are converted into auditory vibrations. His WiFi-enabled antenna also allows him to receive satellite signals and data. He co-founded the Cyborg Foundation in 2010, an international organization dedicated to defending cyborg rights, promoting cyborg art, and assisting those who desire to become cyborgs. He co-founded the Transpecies Society in 2017, an organization that provides non-human identities a voice, raises awareness of the issues they confront, fights for the freedom of self-design, and offers community-based development of new senses and organs.
