Sometimes, we should be glad to be born as a healthy person. Even though we might be infected by cold or fever occasionally, but we’ll soon recover from it very soon.

Honestly, there are many unfortunate people outside there, who trying their best to live their life, even they’ve already diagnosed as a half handicapped or totally disabled.

Tony Quan would be the main character of our today’s story. Why? It’s because he was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), which is a form of motor neuron disease that caused by the degeneration of motor neurons in the central nervous system! Due to the torturing of this unmerciful master, Tony almost completely physically paralyzed except for his eyes.

EyeWriter

In order to let Tony expresses thoughts inside his mind, his friends have been developed a cool device called, “EyeWriter”. The most amazing part about the EyeWriter is allowing Tony to draw with his eyes.

Honestly, the whole project is based on the very basic components, such as:

Cheap sunglasses,

A micro CCD camera,

IR LEDs,

Miscellaneous electrical hardware and electrical components,

Custom software written in openFrameworks,

Capture card,

Projector,

Wireless broadband USB stick, and

Laptop!

It’s truly a low-cost eye-tracking device, which is enabling the patients with ALS to write or draw using their eyes! Frankly, it’s one of the coolest devices that we’ve ever seen in the past few years… [http://fffff.at/eyewriter/]
