That is pretty amazing isnt it ??

Just goes to show how adaptable the human body can be, but the fact its a seven year old kid who has worked this out is unreal. Its nice to see a good news story as well just for once.

Best of the luck to the little guy, well played wee man !!

He was on a TV show a few months ago, nice to see the Beeb keeping up. :rolleyes:

There was an older American guy who does the same thing, he was tested in a room with objects hanging at various heights. He did pretty well.

Will he lose the abillity when he gets older and the sensitivity of his hearing is reduced?
No, he shouldn't, at least not until he's well into old age.

Sonar works better at high frequencies, which is the part of hearing which goes first, but those clicks were well within the normal adult range. Any fall-off would in any case be balanced by years of experience.
