MiCommunity is developing a senior-friendly interface that places key functions of technology devices into an easy to understand, icon-based system. Seniors in assisted living facilities are often separated from family and friends, and would benefit from the opportunity to connect and engage with others through devices such as smartphones and tablets, yet this demographic is often the most frustrated by technology. MiCommunity makes technology approachable for seniors by anticipating the most common tasks they wish to perform, and then making those tasks easy, intelligent, and intuitive.
