Things that Work and Ways to Make Things Work

Access on Main Street is a website that features mainstream products that, by chance or design, make life easier for a person with a disability. Its aim is to inform consumers, inspire designers, and wake up marketers to opportunities with these underserved customers. Things they’ve highlighted include a hands-free guitar tuner, a new punctuation mark and the Powerzoa, a device you can attach to the power cord of an appliance that allows you to turn it off and on via a webpage.
But, if you’re not up for waiting around for the rest of the world to start designing products for people with disabilities, visit OneSwitch.org.uk, a site with a list of do-it-yourself adaptations for games and toys, like the pictured Water Blaster.
