Before this eyewriter, the only way a paralyzed person who’s eyes are the only body part that’s not paralyzed could write was to use morse code. Well, here’s EyeWriter, a DIY invention that allows such paralyzed person to write using their eyes.
I think this gadget has a lot more possibilities going on forward, great DIY.
Tony Quan was diagnosed with ALS in 2003. The disease has left him almost completely physically paralyzed except for his eyes. With EyeWriter Tony can now draw with his eyes.
“The EyeWriter project is on ongoing collaborative research effort to empower people, who are suffering from ALS, with creative technologies. The project began in Los Angeles, Caifornia in 2009, when members of the GRL, FAT, OF and TEG communities teamed-up with a legendary LA graffiti writer, publisher and activist, named Tony Quan, aka TEMPTONE.
