Day #4: Mo’ Pupils Mo’ Problems from Evan Roth on Vimeo.

Folks in the Graffiti Research Lab/ FATlab/ whatever-it’s-called-these-days are working on a project that is truly awesome on so many levels. TEMPT ONE, a famous Los Angeles graffiti writer, has ALS (aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease), which means at this point that he has little motor control. What these folks are working on is a device to translate tracked eye movements into brush strokes for making light graffiti. A small camera mounted on a pair of glasses tracks pupil movement, and some software (built in OpenFrameworks) creates the visuals. Track the progress via daily update videos on the FATlab site.
