The nerve disease ALS left graffiti artist TEMPT paralyzed from head to toe, forced to communicate blink by blink. In a remarkable talk at TEDActive, entrepreneur Mick Ebeling shares how he and a team of collaborators built an open-source invention that gave the artist — and gives others in his circumstance — the means to make art again.
Mick Ebeling is founder of The Ebeling Group, an international production company and creative think tank, representing some of the world’s leading design and directing collectives.
He and a team of programmers, hackers, artists and inventors developed the EyeWriter — a low-cost eye-tracking device that allows artists with the nerve disease ALS to draw using only their eyes.
