We live in a touch-screen world. One where tiny computers full of information live in our pockets. Where boarding passes are printed at touch-screen kiosks and groceries are paid for at touch-screen card readers. A world where extending a finger and making contact with a particular point gets us what we want.
Well, except for the millions of us across the world who experience motor impairments — the millions of us who are being left behind. We had the opportunity to tell the story of Martez M. who is helping to make smart devices learn from touch patterns to help account for those people who have motor impairments.
