Gamer Plays Minecraft With His Eyebrows


Unlike most Minecraft players, Alex doesn’t have the full use of his hands. He has spinal muscular atrophy, so he uses voice commands, eye control and a hand movement switch to play created by the games charity, SpecialEffect. To allow Alex to play even more complex games, the charity upgraded his setup with lever switches he can control with his eyebrows.

Alex caught on very quickly and “within ten minutes of using the switches in Minecraft, he’s clicking one to jump and then, while in the air, using the other to place a block under his feet.”
