James Powderly (Graffiti Research Lab) Video-Profile



(Creators Direktlab, thanx Matt!)

Schönes Video über James Powderly, der zusammen mit Ethan Roth das Graffiti Research Lab gründete und so tolle Sachen wie die LED Throwies, Laser Tagging und den Eyewriter entwickelte. Matt schreibt mir:

James Powderly is today's featured Creator on our recently launched Creators Project site. If you are unfamiliar with James, he's an aerospace-dropout-turned-super-hybrid-engineer-designer who co-founded Graffiti Research Lab and F.A.T. and most recently worked on the award-winning Eyewriter project which won the prestigious Ars Technica Gold Award.

In this video James takes us through his creative steps and thoughts behind some of the biggest projects that he has worked on such as LED throwies, L.A.S.E.R. Tag, and probably the most gut-wrenching/heart-inspiring story behind the creation of Eyewriter for the graffiti legend Tempt. Tempt suffers from ALS and is virtually paralyzed by the disease. But through sheer tenacity and technology James and the group created a custom "eyewriter" that allows Tempt to once again create with just eye movements, thwarting the effect of ALS.
