'If Only' from Bath Research & Development and KT Equal, is led by Professor Eccleston at the University of Bath. The 'If Only' competition invites designers of all levels and backgrounds to create unique and innovative design solutions that could make a real difference to the practical problems experienced around the home by older and disabled people.
A little about the competition:
We have asked older people and those with disabilities to take videos of practical problems that they have experienced around the home whilst about their everyday lives. These videos have been uploaded to our website and are also available on our free app. This video and photo library serve to inspire designers to develop a novel technology to tackle the challenges faced by older and disabled people. The winning designer will receive a £5,000 cash prize.
How could you contribute?
The competition is open to UK residents only to give an opportunity to our budding designers to be supportive of inclusive designing. Also, to inspire the great minds indulged in creating a design we are collecting videos for our video library which is accessible on our Facebook Page and Website.
