Assistive Technology Trends

Stephen Hawking said "the future is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities."  But what are those possibilities, you ask?  Well, as technology becomes more ubiquitous and readily available for everyone to purchase, we will explore some of the current and future general technology application trends that could be considered assistive technology.  Some technologies to consider are wearables, digital assistants (smart speakers) and even the worlds of Virtual and Augmented Reality.
