The Eyewriter, a relatively simple device, allows paraplegics the opportunity to draw.

A simple description, sure, but the essential notion behind a communicative tool originally devised for graf writer Tempt One. The intent is to empower people, to keep the mind active, and to facilitate continued artistic practice. The Eye Writer has garnered the attention of Pepsi, who have rewarded the idea with a spot on its Pepsi Refresh Rewards Program.

If the Eye Write generates enough votes, Pepsi will help provide the necessary funding to further develop the idea and distribute devices to artists in need. Interested in voting? Click here.
