How do you live your life if your body and voice donâ€™t work? You connect with the world using your eyes! Give a speech, ,write a book, surf the web, program a computer or text a friend â€“ all thatâ€™s required is control of one eye. As featured in Nancy Clevelandâ€™s 2018 TEDx talk, hear stories of amazing people who do it all with the Eyegaze Edge Â® , an eye-operated communication and control system.
