Video: human echolocation

That some blind people learn to echolocate has been known for half a century, but what people can learn to accomplish with human echolocation - mountain biking, for example - is still rather surprising. Watch Daniel Kish, Executive Director of World Access for the Blind, explain and demonstrate the technique in the video embedded below (or click here to go to YouTube). (Oh, ignore the silly journalist's "more than human" angle).
