EyeWriter Source Code Released To The Public

"Members of Free Art and Technology (FAT), OpenFrameworks, the
Graffiti Research Lab, and The Ebeling Group communities have
teamed-up with a legendary LA graffiti writer, publisher and activist,
named Tony Quan, aka TEMPTONE. Tony 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. The 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.

This week the team behind the EyeWriter project released all the
Source code, free software, DIY instructions, and eye tags by Tempt1
to the public at eyewriter.org"
