Makeathon in Mexico for disabled friendly technology
A makeathon was held over the weekend in the Mexico City to encourage innovation for the disabled people.
Teams from 10 universities were involved in making disabled friendly stuff at the makeathon.
As part of the initiative, 15 children with disabilities were assigned to 15 teams of designers, engineers and developers.
The teams worked on ways to provide mobility solutions to the disabled children in just three days of the event.
The makeathon was organized by Tikkun Olam Makers – TOM. TOM is a global initiative that aims to connect the people with disabilities to experts of various fields.
This will help in developing technology that can be used by the people with disabilities in their day to day life.
