Computex 2015 – Technology at your Fingertips!

computex

I’ve been wondering if there are any useful developments in technology that can be helpful for people with disabilities. It’s often the things that are not designed for people with disabilities specifically, that can help us as disabled people, to get the most out of our everyday lives. During my research, I found out about Computex – an annual technology show in Taiwan. I decided to blog about some of the devices that were demonstrated there and how they could potentially help the disability community. 

Targeting touchscreens

I’ve just been reading about how a San Francisco designer, Matt Krenn, has identified the difficulty of using touchscreens in cars. It seems car manufacturers are starting to use touchscreens rather than nice clunky buttons. This is silly as it’s more difficult to press a button on a touchscreen without taking eyes off the road. Matt’s solution is an interface that doesn’t require the driver’s gaze to move from the road.
