Microsoft are trying to make public spaces more accessible to blind and partially sighted people...using beacons.

I'm attending Microsoft's Future Decoded event next week, and was wondering what the company was doing in the beacon space. The answer is both unexpected and inspirational.

This is a great use for the technology and one that, as the linked article suggests, would have benefits to users well beyond the target audience. I wish the team luck and will be really interested to see how this initiative progresses.
