Have you ever thought what your life may be like as you age and what technology will be available to you at that time?
In The AgeTech Revolution: A Book about the Intersection of Aging and Technology, author Keren Etkin takes us on a journey to understand the social, political, economical, and physical implications of aging and its impact on the world of technology. Etkin interviews older adults, tech start-up founders and designers, and entrepreneurs, amongst others, to discover what the landscape today looks like and what the hope is five, ten, fifteen years down the road.
We learn that, in the past, older adults have been left out of the equation. Technology has been made for their use but without including them in the design process. This is gradually changing. Technology is becoming a must, not a maybe. Our eyes will be opened to what the future could might hold in the world of technology. AgeTech Revolution provides us with the data and perspective necessary to help change our communities to be more inclusive and supportive of older adults.
