New Old review – everything you need for a techno-utopian retirement


From next-gen mobility scooters to bloodstream nanobots, this pop-up exhibition explores how technology can better help an ageing population.

Universal Design (UD) is an approach to design that increases the potential for developing a better quality of life for a wide range of individuals. It is a design process that enables and empowers a diverse population by improving human performance, health and wellness, and social participation (Steinfeld and Maisel, 2012). It creates products, systems, and environments to be as usable as possible by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability or situation.
