It’s such a rare formula nowadays:
creativity + innovation + human goodness = full of win
Project EyeWriter is a low-cost, open source eye tracking system that will allow people like graffiti artist Tempt1 – completely paralysed from head to toe after being diagnosed with Lou Gherig’s disease – to draw, illustrate and write using just the movement of their eyes.
This is one of the best examples of the ‘we, not me’ movement at work. A completely selfless piece of work genuinely for the betterment of fellow humans, no strings attached – no commercialisation, no fame, no glory sought.
After producing his first EyeWriter illustration, Tempt1 wrote: “This was the first time I have drawn anything since 2003. It feels like taking a breath after being held underwater for five minutes”.
You simply can’t put a value on that.
Inspired innovation aspiring to inspire. We salute you, team EyeWriter.
