We believe Technology should be optimized for disability and usable by all.

Technology is often designed to further enhance the lives of non-disabled individuals, leaving others by the wayside. Lotus Labs aims to combine universal design with inclusive design - optimizing for these ‘corner cases’ and making navigation in a non-disabled-friendly space easier, thereby benefiting us all.
