Beautiful Minds: Stephen Wiltshire

Watch Stephen Wiltshire spend 3 days drawing a detailed architectural drawing of Rome after only seeing it for 45 minutes from a helicopter (video is only 5 minutes).  There is a theory that each of us has these amazing skills buried in our brains ... we just can't access them.  Hmmmmm??  I just say I'm sure glad we've got cameras for the rest of us.


  1. I've never seen anything quite like this; he's extraordinary. A human camera, indeed. I wonder if scientists have done fMRI of his brain.

    Thank you. I love stuff that amazes.

  2. Wow! I wonder if the curvature of the surface assists in the recreation.

    Absolutely amazing.

    Thanks for sharing this Joyce. Like Maureen, I love staff that amazes and Stephen definitely amazes!
