Jaime Lobato talks about human echolocation as a genuine, unexplored skill related to the location and the form of objects in space by the reflections of sound (echo and reverb). It involves self-produced body sounds for spatial information. It is an ability that humans possess, and use in daily life unconsciously and consciously in some specific situations, but always discreetly. Usually developed to surprising levels by visually impaired.
