Ten things they haven't come up with yet

by Ouch Team

20th October 2008

We've been pondering what innovations the future may bring for disabled people - or rather it innovations they should bring, in our humble opinion. So we probably need to apologise for showing a certain level of personal interest in this top ten. Oops.
Top Ten
  1. Dolphin timeshare.

  2. Prosthetic limb with embedded MP3 player. (Can we call it an iLeg, or are there copyright restrictions?)

  3. Sparky: the genetically modified half-human / half-monkey facilitator slave.

  4. Surgically embedded hazard warning lights for those scary horizontal pavement moments.

  5. A free Tazer with every blue badge.

  6. Frozac: antidepressant on a stick

  7. Wipe-clean 'no sex here' signs in accessible loos.

  8. benefitsbingo.com.

  9. Pain share trading scheme.

  10. A fully accessible transport system.
