About the solution

He teamed-up with members of Free Art and Technology, OpenFrameworks, the Graffiti Research Lab, and The Ebeling Group communities to create a device that would allow anyone in a similar situation to draw through eye-motion.

"Art is a tool of empowerment and social change, and I consider myself blessed to be able to create and use my work to promote health reform, bring awareness about ALS and help others", Tempt said.
