Connect Ability tech challenge has developers creating applications and hardware for those with special needs

AT&T and NYU are sponsoring the Connect Ability tech challenge, a global competition for developers and makers to create tech to help those with special needs, and we’re seeing a few examples of the great work the enterprising participants have come up with. The winners of the $100,000 prize will be announced July 27, 2015, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. While everyone, participants and users alike, is a winner when bright engineers are working on tech to empower those of us with disabilities, some of the ideas we see today are astounding.
