Yes, more stuff about accessibility

By way of Amor Mundi, I found a link to this really interesting site called, the Open Prothesthics Project. This is nifty to me on several levels.

  • It ties into accessibility and assistive technology.
  • It ties into open source engineering. GPL doesn’t have to be just about software.
  • It can tie into stuff like fab labs. Imagine if doctors in poor countries had access to open sourced designs and fab labs to build limbs for mine victims.
  • This is the kind of grass-roots, human empowerment that flies in the face of gloom and doom.

In a vaguely related sense I have some other accessibility links.
