The trouble is that assistive devices need to be designed by people
who've got the experience about what's really needed.  What I'd seen in
special schools was very limited (in the way that fill the blanks in a
form rarely have the blanks that you need), and tend to be overly

For example, have you seen Steven Hawkings chair, with paraphanalia
dangling off it in all directions?  It turns the chair into a
Frankenstein creation.  And you can bet your bottom dollar that each
device needs its own separate power supply.  We're a long way from
unintrusive, intuitive, good, assistive computing designing.
