Abstract

This paper presents results from the project PACKAGE based on assistive technology to open packages.The project has developed a set of different tools based on user needs. This paper will focus on an automatic device, Magic-Hand, that opens packages with screw tops. A similar automatic device, Magic-Slice was also developed for packages that require a cutting action . The project is within the theme of 'Design for All' and extensive user based functional analysis has been conducted during the project work .The resulting prototypes from the project are currently under going user trials and indicative results are promising.The devices are integrated in kitchen units not to disturb the feel of a normal kitchen. Future developments include the integration of these devices in a smart home environment including a flexible robot.
