Started up in 2009, the eye-writer project is an important research program that aims to benefit numerous people suffering from ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Tony Quan is one of the first users. In 2003, due to ALS, Tony almost became completely physically paralyzed except for his eyes. Luckily, he met up with the Eye-writer, which allows Tony to draw with his eyes. Eye-writer is composed of kinds of electrical components, such as sunglasses, a micro CCD camera, IR LEDs, custom software, a capture card, a computer, etc.
