ALS patient creates app to help raise about the disease

About the solution

Kinnane used a head mouse to create the puzzle game, which required him to laboriously swing his head back-and-forth in order to type. Kinnane created Cube Cyclops to increase awareness of ALS and to offset the enormous cost of his care.

The app creator originally designed the game in an Excel worksheet using the programming language Visual Basic for Microsoft applications.

When Mr. Kinnane decided to convert the game into a smartphone app he acquired the services of DbyDX to assist him. The smartphone app is available at the App Store for the iphone and at Google Play for android phones (.99 cents).

The Cube Cyclops the company is based in Nashville, Tennessee and is committed to increasing awareness of ALS.
