So I’m slowly becoming one of those people who constantly is watching and discussing the latest videos on TED. And you know what, I’m OK with that, because the people who give these talks do some pretty cool shit sometimes.
Well this one is no different.
Mick Ebeling, delivers a talk at TEDActive 2011 on how he saw the paralyzing of graffiti artist TEMPT from ALS(Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, aka Lou Gehrig’s disease) and the steps that he took (along with several others) to break that limitation so that TEMPT could write again.
“The nerve disease ALS left graffiti artist TEMPT paralyzed from head to toe, forced to communicate blink by blink. In a remarkable talk at TEDActive, entrepreneur Mick Ebeling shares how he and a team of collaborators built an open-source invention that gave the artist — and gives others in his circumstance — the means to make art again.”-Via Ted Blog
