The Eye Writer essentially gives paraplegics the opportunity to create and draw despite having no use of their body. The EyeWriter is a low-cost eye-tracking apparatus & custom software that allows graffiti writers and artists with paralysis resulting from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to draw using only their eyes. In 2009, the GRL, openFrameworks, TEG and the FAT Lab collaborated with TEMPT One, legendary LA graf writer and ALS suffer to make the first prototype of the EyeWriter.

The EyeWriter has been accepted for voting by the Pepsi Refresh program and needs people to vote on it for it to get the financial reward from Pepsi in order to make this happen. You can see the project by going to; http://www.refresheverything.com/eyewriter
