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.
