Microsoft Research Design Expo

Inclusive Design & Technologies

In 2014, the World Health Organization radically revised their definition of disability. The crux of this change was to define disability as context dependent rather than as an attribute of a person. Interactions with technology are a clear example of this shift. Design solutions can create new access and new barriers for people participating in society.

Microsoft Research invited the Interface Design program to work in the theme of »Inclusive Design & Technologies« and to participate in the Design Expo 2015. Under the direction of Prof. Boris Müller, Fabian Morón Zirfas, Don Coyner, Richard Banks and Andreas Koller, the students developed six diferent approaches to the challenge. This page gives an overview to the originated projects. Please note that each project has polished website - but also a great work-in-progress documentation.
