An ongoing collaborative project. The EyeWriter is an open-source, do-it-yourself tool that enables TEMPT, and others in similar circumstances, to express and create again. TEMPT is a close friend and fellow artist. The nerve disease, ALS, a.k.a. Lou Gehrig’s disease, has left him paralyzed. He can communicate using only his eyes.
This inspiring story is told in a documentary “Getting Up: The TEMPT ONE story” (watch the trailer) which won the Audience Award at Slamdance 2012, among others.
TIME Magazine voted The EyeWriter one of The Top 50 Inventions of 2010, and was covered by the BBC, NPR, WIRED, Fast Co. etc.
