Nesta Inclusive Technology Prize

Launching the Inclusive Technology Prize

STBY worked with Nesta, the UK’s innovation charity, to create an ‘explanimation’ for the launch of their Inclusive Technology Prize.

The Inclusive Technology Prize is a call for innovative projects that aim to create equal access to life’s opportunities for disabled people, their families, friends and carers in the UK. With 1 in 6 people in the UK living with a disability or limiting long-term illness, it’s an incredibly pressing call for innovative approaches to inclusive design. The 25 semi-finalists span various aspects of one’s life, from designing new lighting systems, to 3D-printed robotic prosthetic hands, to evolvable walking aids. These projects will be assessed by a team of judges in June 2015, with up to 10 finalists awarded £10,000 to take their ideas to the prototype stage.
