Abstract of Talk
In this talk, Dr. Richard Caro will give an overview of the Longevity Explorer community and several different products and technologies the explorer community have been evaluating and trying out, and ideas they have been discussing.
The talk will cover topics including:
- Staying connected;
- Compensation & Augmentation;
- Every-day objects.
Dr Caro’s talk will draw heavily on explorations by the Longevity Explorers — a community of older adults in their 70’s, 80’s and 90’s — who try out new products and explore new ways to leverage technology to make growing older less challenging.
