iBeacon accessibility has many new uses that are making the software more user friendly and a capable device for users with vision impairments. The device gives the ability to mark when they are getting close to a door or steps and to turn on lights and let the user know where there is an accessible entrance.
The iBeacon is also developing for the non-impaired as well and is coming up with new capabilities such as how to find your car in a busy parking lot or to put on your bike so no one can “walk away with it.” With the functionality expanding outside of the impaired realm it might help to perpetuate the number of beacons and the places that interact with them. This in turn will help the impaired because it could offer more accessibility for them due to increased “hype.”
