Why Luis Fernando Cruz is Extraordinary

Luis Cruz is a young inventor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist most popular for inventing the Eyeboard, an innovative system of computer control designed for disabled people to allow them to control their computers simply through their sight. Through Eyeboard, a lot of physically disabled people now have the ability of keeping up and getting in touch with their families who are far away, a feat that has been deemed impossible before.

The Brains Behind Eyeboard, Embedded Entertainment System, and SmartBike

Aside from Eyeboard, Luis is also credited for a number of inventions that have made significant positive contributions to the community. Among these inventions is the first ever video game system in Honduras, the Embedded Entertainment System. Luis also had a major hand in creating the SmartBike, an interactive exercise video game. Through these inventions, Luis has successfully contributed to the advancement of society; however, he himself feels that his work has just begun.

Winning First Place in the Colorado Springs Science Fair Engineering/Mathematics Category

It is not surprising that as a scientist, Luis has made positive contributions to society. What is amazing about him, though, is all that he has accomplished at his age of only 19 years old. Luis began inventing at the age of 14, and since then has become recognized for his technological achievements. As a testament to his fame, Luis has been included in Youth Service America’s list of the 25 Most Powerful and Influential Young People in the World. Luis also holds a number of awards in various international science fairs, the most notable being his First Place title in the Engineering/Mathematics Category of the Colorado Springs Science Fair which was hosted by AFCEA.

Aside from being a very successful inventor, Luis has also had amazing achievements in the world of entrepreneurship for someone of his age. What makes Luis extraordinary however, is not just his accomplishments, but the drive that caused him to accomplish those things. Luis believes that through entrepreneurship, he is able to further improve his community. Luis sees business as a means of reaching out to others, using one’s resources to benefit everyone in his or her community.

Luis discussed this in a blog he wrote:

“The question should not be "How can I benefit from entrepreneurship?" but instead, "How can I improve society by becoming an entrepreneur?" If we see it from the perspective of the well- being of a business, most economists will conclude that the best results come when your decision-making skills not only positively affect your business' revenue, but also your team. If we apply this reasoning to the pursuit of our goals, viewing society as our main ally, we can most likely succeed in anything.”

The other thing that inspired and encouraged Luis to pursue his career in business was the experience of witnessing how numerous youths in his own country had no desire in taking part in helping their communities improve. As the future of their nation, the youths in Honduras were supposed to be learning and developing various skills and abilities that would benefit their country one day; however, due to the lack of support and encouragement, they simply grow up without having any vision of what they want their future to be.

Luis Cruz Keeps Inventing and Innovating

Since he started his career, Luis has kept on doing what he always knew—innovating. Luis firmly believes that probably the best way you can contribute to your community is through making something that would benefit people. His idea is simple: find a need and do what you can to fill it. Luis often says:

“With the goal of eventually becoming an entrepreneur, I valued the importance of innovating. If you think about it, it makes sense that the most-needed project you do is the one that is most successful. If you can solve a problem for many people by innovating, you are definitely going to succeed in whatever field you are in. My objective is not only to help people with my projects, but also to encourage young people around the world to develop a particular interest in innovating to solve problems of our society to make this a better world.”

Today, Luis is a college student studying Electrical Engineering and is looking forward to completing his degree so he could do more for the society. For him, the work is never finished. Amidst all of his achievements, Luis knows that there are still a lot to be done; a lot of issues that need to be solved, and through innovation, the possibilities of solving them are endless. Luis’ life constantly reminds us of the fact that people, no matter how young they may be, if given the information and encouragement, can become outstanding in their own right and can bring great hope of improvement to their community.

“I define myself as an entrepreneur. More specifically, I tell people that I am an entrepreneur in philanthropy because I value the importance of helping others. People usually define philanthropy as the act of giving away money to charity; however, it is actually a very broad term. To put it simply, it is the act of "loving humanity." Therefore, any act that expresses this love for humanity can be expressed as a philanthropic act. I have learned that by innovating and stimulating the development of society at the same time, the best result will always come if you work as an entrepreneur for the sake of philanthropy.”
