Google was proud to host the Bay Area Makeathon on September 11–13, a weekend to design a more accessible world. This 72-hour event brought those who understand the needs of people with disabilities together with technologists, designers and makers. They exchanged ideas, designed prototypes and wrote code to answer the challenges of people with disabilities. Each innovation was judged by a diverse panel that included Anupam Pathak (Google Life Sciences), Dale Dougherty (MAKE Media) and Margaret Farman (United Cerebral Palsy of the North Bay). Soon you’ll have the chance to help get these prototypes into the hands of people who need them by funding them on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo. Donations will be matched, getting us one step closer to a more accessible world.
