Creatures of Mastodon who have disabilities of any kind, I want to hear from you. I think home automation has a huge untapped potential to aid people with disabilities function in their homes, but as a person without physical disabilities I cannot determent what and what would not be helpful, that's where you come in! If you either have an idea, or are willing to listen to mine, please contact me! atm this is purely academic, but who knows!

As a bit of extra context, I'm mostly thinking about physical disabilities, but if there are other disabilities of any kind that could benefit from home automation I'd love to discuss that! For now this is a purely academic indevour so I can't make any promises, but it is something I would love to work on at some point. Even if not I think it would be a really interesting convo regardless!

Because it's just academic, I wnat to put privacy and security issues asside for a moment, although that will obviously need to be adressed at some point. For the moment however, I want to purely focus on the possible. pls let me know if you have any ideas or are willing to listen to mine!

A few examples I have thought of myself:
- automatic or phone operated doors / curtains/ cuboards
- voice controlled showers
- height adjustable furniture.
