A shape-shifting navigation device for both the sighted and visually impaired (w/ Video)

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 03:25:07 +0000

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 10:53:08 +0000

Techcrunch feature an good article on the smart home and accessibility. For over thirty years I’ve been kludging ways to control what I can around me.  There’s a whole field of rehabilitation technology centred around what’s termed “environmental control”.
