IHCD opens our doors to all designers, engineers, and general smarty pants folks to come and work with some of our User/Experts who have a mix of hand impairments to begin to understand where this scissor idea just doesn’t quite cut it.

IHCD has found that people at the edges of the spectrum of ability are especially attuned to knowing when design fails, and also to what works. This is where true innovation happens!

Coming to IHCD straight from South by Southwest Making More of Ourselves is an activity-based provocation about our addiction to the visual and how it is other senses, like touch, smell and hearing, that are key to designing the future of multimodal user experiences for wearable technologies and more.

People will learn the complexities of our senses, how they interact and how they work to deliver emotion and information.

Where did “universal design” come from, and where is it headed? Will our future be populated with products that work for everyone, or we will increasingly use devices customized for an audience of one? How do we acknowledge individual differences while building a more accessible world?

Join Gianfranco Zaccai (Continuum), Jon Marshall (MAP Project office), Scott Summit (3D Systems), and moderator Aimi Hamraie (Vanderbilt University) for a spirited conversation about the origins and future of universal design and accessibility.
