Paralyzed Graffiti Writer Tags Again With 'EyeWriter' Design



It must be nice to have friends as kind and brilliant as those of Los Angeles graffiti artist Tony Quan. And Quan must be a great guy (and artist), to boot. Since 2003, Quan has had Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a disorder that renders its sufferers largely paralyzed, while allowing them full use of their minds and eyes. As they hated to see their comrade incapable of any longer writing his tag, TEMPTONE, they gathered in Southern California this month to come up with a solution. Well, they did. And, though we don't pretend to understand exactly how it works, if you're so inclined, you can read it yourself. Behold, dear friends, the EyeWriter. [From: F.A.T., via BoingBoing]
