Stephen Wiltshire

Australian 60 Minutes did a story on Stephen Wiltshire and Daniel Tammet back in August.

Daniel Tammet is the autistic savant who learnt to speak Icelandic in one week.

Here's Stephen Wiltshire drawing Tokyo from memory.

Daniel Tammet.

It is mentioned in the transcript of the Sixty Minutes show I linked to above.

... set a new record for reciting the number Pi to a staggering 22,500 decimal places ...

I don't know who the kid is, but being a shred fanatic, I'd say he's for real.
