Detailed Description
The challenge is to design something that would improve a physically disabled person's everyday life. Prototypes of the design are not mandatory but may help in explaining your solution.

How impactful will this solution be to a person's life?
How much was this idea thought out? Is it feasible? Does it look like there was a lot of effort put in to think about the end user? Is the end design aesthetically appealing?
