One Saturday in late June, Michael Phillips fired a hadgun. He used an eyebrow to pull the trigger. 

The feat of marksmanship came thanks to a hack that brought together a Glock 17, a sensor and a specially rigged mount, Motherboard reported Thursday. The hack helped Phillips, 37, overcome spinal muscular atrophy, a severe condition that he's lived with since birth, and accomplish a goal he'd set for himself.

The rig was put together by ATMakers.org, a small group of hackers who focus on assistive technology. The organization said in a blog post that its engineers had been developing the shooting setup over the past four years.

Bill Binko, the founder of ATMakers.org, said in a video that he had seen a list of activities Phillips wanted to do and figured he could help. 

"ATMakers is not in the gun business," Binko said, adding but "I thought I can help him do that."

Phillips' blog has a list of things to do that includes"Firing a gun with a switch."
