Chinese boy has night vision, eyes that glow like a cat's

Assuming this is true....

Add this mutation to the list of transhumanist must-haves: Boy’s Eyes Glow In The Dark, See In Night Vision. I'm thinking it's a kind of saltation (or macromutation) that was the result of several fortuitous genetic mutations. That said, the set of mutations required for such a trait can't be too complex, otherwise it would have never arisen spontaneously. This is good news as we may eventually be able to use genetic technologies to deliberately create such a condition ourselves.

A boy has stunned medics with his ability to see in pitch black with eyes that glow in the dark.

Doctors have studied Nong Youhui's amazing eyesight since his dad took him to hospital in Dahua, southern China, concerned over his bright blue eyes.

Dad Ling said: "They told me he would grow out of it and that his eyes would stop glowing and turn black like most Chinese people but they never did."

Medical tests conducted in complete darkness show Youhui can read perfectly without any light and sees as clearly as most people do during the day.

Could Nong Youhui be a Hybrid or Starchild? A new and growing generation of extraordinary and gifted children are springing up across our planet, is the human species evolving, or possibly our Extraterrestrial visitors tinkering with our DNA? As always you decide.

"Experts believe he was born with a rare condition called leukodermia which has left his eyes with less protective pigment and more sensitive to light." http://www.whatsonxiamen.com/ent3744.html

OR it is spelled leucoderma.

- Is there protective pigment in the eyes?
- snopes has nothing
