Q is no longer able to draw, something he used to enjoy very much. This project is a great example of what can be done with cheap, existing, open source technology and a dedicated group of hackers and artists intent on overcoming their friend's disability.

Legendary LA graffiti writer, publisher and activist, TEMPTONE was diagnosed with ALS in 2003, a disease which has left him almost completely physically paralyzed… except for his eyes. This international team is working together to create a low-cost, open source eye-tracking system that will allow ALS patients to draw using just their eyes. Their long-term goal is to create a professional/social network of software developers, hardware hackers, urban projection artists and ALS patients from around the world who are using local materials and open source research to creatively connect and make eye art.

The team:

The core development teams consists of members of Free Art and Technology (FAT), OpenFrameworks and the Graffiti Resarch Lab: Tempt1, Evan Roth, Chris Sugrue, Zach Lieberman,Theo Watson and James Powderly.]]>

"Our experience of reality is constrained by our biology" says neuroscientist David Eagleman.  And he wants to change that.  This TED Talk is a fascinating look at how experiments with non-invasive technologies have returned lost senses, like hearing or sight, and opened the door (thanks to the flexible processing power by our amazing brains) to potentially adding a myriad of new, technologically enhanced, senses as well.
