In Eindhoven, the new digital IoT public services made possible through a city-wide grid are being co-designed by citizens. A good example of how cities can keep the driving seat when it comes to Big Data.
Not good-doing, but good design. Inclusive Design – Design for All – means not only improving the quality of life of the disabled but creating sustainable innovation: products that are easier to use and long-lived for everyone. Thanks to new technologies, Design For All is now within the reach of all companies. And it is a good idea for business.
FabLab and 3D printing are fundamental tools for Design For All, especially when it comes to disabled children. There is in fact a social side of these practices that often escapes, forgotten behind the myriad of objects that digital manufacturing allows to create and sell at a good price. A project by TOG and OpenDot shows it in Milan: Enrico Bassi tells it.
