Sydney - An artist is growing an ear on his arm.
Stelarc - whose real name is Stelios Arcadiou - has revealed he is growing the extra organ in the hope he can connect it to the internet, giving people the chance to listen to him.
The Australian professor explained to ABC: "This ear is not for me, I've got two good ears to hear with. This ear is a remote listening device for people in other places.
"They'll be able to follow a conversation or hear the sounds of a concert, wherever I am, wherever you are.
"If I'm not in a wi-fi hotspot or I switch off my home modem, then perhaps I'll be offline, but the idea actually is to try to keep the ear online all the time."
