Glass: Game Changer for People with Disabilities?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Media and agencies are plagued with tunnel vision. They’re stuck thinking about mundane use cases for Glass that are reminiscent of first phase mobile apps. Wake up. Glass has the potential for more impact than what brands are talking about. Let’s instead explore more complex use cases and look into how wearable tech can drastically improve lives of people with disabilities or special needs. In this session we will explore how Glass and other wearables can unlock new possibilities for people with vision issues, hearing issues, or decreased mobility of their limbs. We’ll share real users’ stories, explore how wearable tech may address their needs, and look at what’s possible today versus looking into the future.
