Eyedrivomatic Eye controlled wheelchair #3DPrinting

Patrick Joyce shared on Thingiverse:

Eyedrivomatic – Eye controlled wheelchair

People who have totally lost the use of their muscles cannot operate their own wheelchairs.

The Eyedrivomatic system takes advantage of existing eye tracking technology to allow users to drive their chairs again – using only their eyes. It’s a low cost, open source way to give mobility back to people who thought they had lost it forever.

It is intended for electric wheelchair users who have a wheelchair mounted pc which they operate using eyegaze equipment. Currently the system only works in conjunction with the grid2 aac package. However we are writing a stand alone pc application which should be ready before christmas.

Here are all the files needed to 3d print the parts needed for an eyedrivomatic system.

Eyedrivomatic is an open project. Open source software and hardware. For more information, and links to the build instructions and software, visit

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
