TEMPT’s Eyewriter Glasses

In mid-2009 the GRL/F.A.T. Lab team were commissioned by production company The Ebeling Group/Not Impossible Foundation to create an open source hardware/software system that would give L.A.-based graf writer, TEMPT the ability to tag using his eyesight. TEMPT was stricken with ALS ("Lou Gherig's Disease") in 2003, rendering him immobile and only able to use his eyes. Through F.A.T. Lab’s Eyewriter program, TEMPT has been able to get up digitally in places like Norway and Japan. The program was pegged by TIME Magazine as one of the 50 best inventions of 2010.
