I'm really good at making clicking noises with my palate. Seriously, I can do it almost as fast as a dolphin. I'm actually bored enough to try to learn this now.
Thanks OP

I use scat music to echo-locate so that people think I'm just a hipcat being hip and cool with his tunes.

control the pitch, pretend you're making music.

Hell if you got good enough could you invent a language using only clicks? Is this how dolphins communicate?

I believe that there is an african tribe that does this.

I can use it in my own home at night when stumbling around to do use the bathroom at 2am. One time I actually cleared out all the furniture and everything to make a bare room for doing painting and shit. Holy hell it really fucked with me due to the complete sound change. I never noticed what was going on until that happened. Now I know.

Too bad English isn't more of a sing-songy language like some of the Asian languages, only actually musical than what they do,

Can you imagine communicating like this all the time?

is there an organization to develop humans with abilities like that

>> No.9346943

I believe there might be blind people who can do it perfectly after lots of training. But an organization? I don't think so, anon.

>> No.9346960

In one of the "Old Man's War" series of books, someone is blindfolded and tied to a chair. They use their hearing to create a map of the room via echolocation and their BrainPal creating an unknown advantage that allows for escape.
