DJ with ALS mixes using EYES

ALS sufferer and Japanese DJ Masatane Muto has won worldwide fame for performing music and video using only his eyes. At one of his concerts in Tokyo on Tuesday, the video DJ spoke about his latest fundraising campaign and passion for music. Muto was first diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) three years ago, at the age of 27, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects... Еще nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. ALS affects physical mobility, but, according to Muto, eyeballs are one of the few parts of the body that remain fully mobile. This is why Muto uses special sensor-equipped eyeglasses that allow him to select videos and music on a smartphone app, executing commands by blinking. «People can have chance to know about ALS through music. In order to reduce ALS in the future, in order to make people act», he said. Muto calls himself the world's first 'eye video disc jockey'. ALS was first discovered in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it was not until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought international attention to the disease. The cause of 90 to 95 percent of ALS cases is unknown, while the 5 to 10 percent remaining is inherited genetically from a person's parents.
