Human Camera

The power of the human mind is unbelievable really. Our ability to harness it is measly at times. A spectacular example of that has recently been causing a stir. Stephen Wiltshire is a savant artist with uncanny ability.
"Given an aerial tour of Rome, for instance, Wiltshire soon reproduced the whole city, in astonishing detail, down to the correct number of arches on the Coloseum – drawing the sketch from memory."
Check out the truly amazing excerpt from the documentary featuring this story here.
