Emerging technology empowering 
 the special needs user
  2. 2. Problem
 Consumer product ecosystems are typically not designed with special needs users in mind. Applying new and existing design principles can uncover a number of solutions made possible with emerging technology which would allow these existing ecosystems to work for more users.
 As designers we need to do more upfront research and validation with end users to better develop our special use cases before we prototype. When applying new or existing technologies, technologists need to be in the initial brainstorming exercises so that we can then narrow down our big ideas into prototypes that can be quickly and iteratively tested with special needs users.
