What happens when you need help and don't know where to go? Yesterday, we shot a video on demystifying homelessness, and we met an actress who told us our story made her realize she has been at risk before. Come out Dec 18 and learn more! #techforgood #nonprofit #forthe1in10 #techto #torontoevent #socialgood #torontosocialgood #torontowinter

✊🏻🌎 Als Wissenschaftler 1985 nachwiesen, dass in der Ozonschicht ein Loch ist, war der Tatendrang gross. Zu Beginn wurde das Loch nur über der Antarktis und Australien nachgewiesen, später stellte man fest, dass auch Europa betroffen war. Und das Loch dehnte sich zwischenzeitlich immer weiter aus! • Zu Beginn war die Wissenschaft ratlos, wie man das Problem lösen könnte. Doch es wurden nach Lösungen gesucht, und letztlich gefunden. Im Montrealer Protokoll von 1987 verpflichten sich 24 Staaten und die EU dem Schutz der Ozonschicht. Da wurde beschlossen, die Produktion von ozonschädigenden Chemikalien, wie Fluorchlorkohlenwasserstoffe, einzustellen. • Die Industrie entwickelte einen Ersatzstoff für Sprühdosen. Der Entschluss zeigt Wirkung: Das Ozonloch ist in diesem Jahr so klein wie seit rund 30 Jahren nicht mehr! Wissenschaftler der Vereinten Nationen gehen davon aus, dass die Ozonschicht bis Mitte des Jahrhunderts komplett geheilt sein wird. • 🌱 @improvemagch #TomorrowIsNow

Everyone asks what the difference is between riding a normal bike compared to an e-bike: Electric bikes are easy, convenient and accessible, so you'll be more inclined to ride and exercise. Pedal a lot, or a little, or not at all. Unlike a regular bike, you have a choice!

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Follow @innovationstation for more tech & trends! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ford has developed a new "smart" window that can help blind passengers experience the passing scenery 🏜 as they travel by car. The device is called "Feel the View." It was developed in partnership with Aedo, an Italian 🇮🇹 startup that specializes in creating devices for the blind. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here's how it works. As the car drives. a built-in, outward facing camera 📸 takes photographs of the scenery. Then, the smart window converts those images into gray scale and uses LED lights 💡 to project the image onto the window. Each color on the spectrum has been assigned a particular frequency, and each color vibrates 〰 at its own frequency so that the blind can simply reach out and touch 👆 the vibrations in order to "read" the landscape. There's also an audio 🔊 device in the car which provides descriptions of the landscape, to help the visually impaired contextualize what they are feeling through the smart window. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How else could this technology improve the lives of the blind? Give us your thoughts in the comments section. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In 2014 Gavin was nominated for the “Breaking Down Barriers” Award for Button. Sadly these barriers still exist but rest assured Gavin and the Neatebox team are still fighting to smash them and won’t be giving up any time soon. As always it is your support for disabled people that spurs us on every day. Keep it coming and let’s get this done. Your Neatebox Team. [photo description - Gavin pointing out the stupid distance between a crossing button and Murray the guide dog owner as he prepares to cross the road.] Following text posted in Dec 2014 by @guidedogsuk : “Meet Breaking Down Barriers Award finalist - Gavin Neate. The countdown is on to our Guide Dogs Annual Awards 2014, in partnership with Microsoft held in London tomorrow, December 10. As a Guide Dog Mobility instructor for 18 years, Gavin noticed how difficult his clients often found it to locate and operate pedestrian crossing boxes. The answer Gavin came up with was the Neatebox which is a digital proximity device that can be operated from a simple mobile phone app. . . #LifeChanging #a11y #disabilityawareness #disabilityadvocacy #disability #techforgood #EqualityByDefault #ButtonApp #inclusivetech
