New assistive tech channel? Answered
We're about to break out a new channel for assistive/adaptive tech projects, and other "disability hack" type of Instructables.
The big question: what do we call this channel, and what category do we sort it under?
Why is this a hard question? Check out the Humana Health by Design contest entries - they include everything from ultra low-tech tools and life hacks to construction projects and full-on techie builds.
Perhaps we need more than one channel. If so, how should we divide the Instructables? Do we need one channel for high-tech projects, and one for low-tech? I've been playing with the ideas of "assistive tech" for the high-tech/gadget-based projects to be filed under Technology, and "adaptive tools" for the low-tech/reuse projects and life-hacks to be sorted under Living. These still seem to be arbitrary distinctions, and I'm not sure they make sense.
