The ONCE Foundation exhibited a house model that incorporates all kinds of devices to allow its use by people with disabilities, so that they can handle the devices without even touching them.
A space of 72 square meters in which visitors to the fair were able to verify that it is possible to open the door of the house, activate the lights or raise the blinds, among other functions, via a mobile phone. A way to draw attention and raise awareness about the difficulty of access to public and private spaces that many people and groups encounter due to their poor design.
