Disability and Technology
Engineering a More Equitable Ireland:
By Ted Burke, Annraoi de Paor, and Eugene Coyle
Many of the practical difficulties faced by people with disabilities can be addressed through assistive technology. Engineers who are not directly involved in the disability sector should be aware that by designing devices, environments, and amenities so that they are accessible to people with the widest range of abilities, they can promote greater equality of opportunity in education, employment, and citizenship for disabled people.
Advances in Neurotechnology Lead to 'Thought-Driven' Navigation of Virtual Helicopter in 3-D Space
A helicopter in a virtual world can be controlled by 'thought,' as decoded from electrical signals generated by the brain. Recent work by Dr. Bin He and his group at the University of Minnesota demonstrated such possibility.
