Tech enables artist with disabilities draw with his eyes
June 22, 2016
EyeWriter is a low-cost, eye tracking software that enables patients of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis to draw with their eyes.
Members of Free Art and Technology (FAT), OpenFrameworks, the Graffiti Research Lab, and The Ebeling Group communities teamed up with a legendary Los Angeles based graffiti writer, publisher and activist, called TemptOne who was diagnosed with ALS to create this. TemptOne was left almost completely physically paralyzed, except for his eyes.
Their long-term goal is to create a social network of software developers, hackers, artists and ALS patients from around the world who are use local materials and open source research to creatively connect and make eye art.
