Daniel Tammet has autism and astonishing savant skills: despite his social challenges and his need for routine, he can perform unbelievable linguistic and mathematical feats from learning the Icelandic language in a week to memorizing the number Pi up to thousands of digits.
He is helped by a condition called synaesthesia – in his case, the ability to see numbers as colours, textures, and shapes (hence, the “blue day” of his birth).
