Hacked PlayStation camera lets paralyzed artist paint again

When a prolific graffiti writer was diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), thus effectively curbing his ability to create art, a group of his friends came together to create a solution. The result was an amazing hands-free device called the EyeWriter.

The EyeWriter employs open source software and hacked eye tracking hardware (for example, the Playstation Eye camera) to allow artists who have lost the use of their hands to continue to create art. You can get the instructions on how to create your own low-cost version of the EyeWriter here, and you can see video of Tempt One creating art with the EyeWriter in the video below.
