Great acoustics story

Here on wired. Lovely story.
Although... Boingboing's take on this is semi-idiotic: he did not "hack" his machine, but uploaded some clever models, developed quite independantly of him, by boffins in research departments.

About a year after I received the implant, I asked one implant engineer how much of the device's hardware capacity was being used. "Five percent, maybe." He shrugged. "Ten, tops."

I was determined to use that other 90 percent. I set out on a crusade to explore the edges of auditory science. For two years tugging on the sleeves of scientists and engineers around the country, offering myself as a guinea pig for their experiments. I wanted to hear Boléro again.
