The goal of the makeathon that will be held April 21-23 at the Brooklin Navy Yard’s New Lab is to develop affordable assistive technologies. More than 180 people in four to ten person teams will work with people who understand a specific disability. The teams will work to develop hardware and software prototypes that improve inclusiveness for people who have disabilities. This will fill needs where there has been no market or government interest. The designs will be made available to the public on line.
