Problem: Tablets are often seen as being more accessible to disabled users due to their simplified input methods and interface. However, they are not perfect, being typically thin, filleted rectangles of slick plastic or metal.
Solution: This concept adds tactile depth to the tablet form factor, providing handholds in its form, and grip in the texture of its materials.
Sensory feedback and highly visible physical affordances are emphasised.
Providing the tablet as a service could allow the manufacturer to rent out the device to users, opening possibilities for component upgrades, repair, and end-of-life re-use.
