They say 2014 is the year of wearable computers and devices. While marketed mostly towards the busy professionals and health conscious athletes, there's far more to these devices.
This presentation looks at the intersection of wearable computers and accessibility. How can these sensor filled devices provide alternative displays and gestures? How can they help a blind person see the world, a person with a mobility issue explore, track health and detect traumatic events before they happen?
This presentation was created for the Inclusive Design 24 series of webinars that celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2014.
