You might remember a post last year about a graffiti artist, sadly paralyzed by a neural disorder, who got a second chance at creating art by using a home-brewed eye-tracking rig made by some friends and colleagues. The EyeWriter, as it was called, has now been improved, and the EyeWriter 2.0 uses a new system that enhances its usability. Check out the video.
They demonstrated it at the Cinekid festival, where they actually had it hooked up to a robot drawing arm that “printed” their tags. Looks like a pretty sweet setup, and it’s way, way cheaper than a commercial eye-tracking setup.
Lots more pictures and stuff over at FAT.
