iBeacon & Why It’s Not Being Used For The Disabled

Though iBeacons are just coming out on the market it is apparent that everyone wants a piece of the action. It seems that mostly they are being marketed for the retail side of things. Helping to draw customers into stores in an effort to attract more and new customers. If the iBeacon can be used to tell shoppers about deals why can’t it be used to help disabled people get around easier? That it is why it is important for people with disabilities and their advocates to make sure they have a say in the development of this new technology. Though it may come slower than anticipated there is hope that this technology will eventually be available to people that could really benefit from its use. It is our hope that we can help get people talking about the benefits of this technology and help guide the developers and decision makers into making it available for the disabled.
