Innovation for Independence

Wishlist - depicting technology, products and systems


MAKE A WISH! What have you experienced or indentified that you think could be improved by the Inclusive Technology Prize? 

This could be anything related to your everyday life, for example, "I wish I had accessible gardening equipment" or something more blue-sky, "I wish I had gloves that make it possible for hearing people to hear sign language".

The purpose of the Wishlist is to capture people's real needs and issues, to inspire innovative ideas.
