There is an artificial eye capable of observing the world and emitting the sounds of the objects it sees.  But how to give a sound of the objects of the world, maybe personalized? We can train the artificial eye by passing it video-sounds that contain our history and our tastes. Videos of animals, videos of our children laughing and crying, videos of their favorite cars and motorcycles, concerts or stadiums, but also videos with images of war and its sounds. The artificial eye observes and finds in the memory the image most similar to the one seen, modulating the corresponding sound at the output. Easy for the rooster, easy for a Ferrari, but what is the sound of the moon?  Come and visit us!
