In an exciting and innovative project, researchers in the UK are asking people with autism, their families, teachers, and other professionals to make suggestions for new technology ideas to support people with autism.
This project is seeking to involve the autism community in the generation of technology ideas from the start rather than inviting people to join in only once ideas have been proposed or developed.

This is a very cool concept that is a lot of fun to participate in—definitely worth checking out! You do not have to live in the UK to download the app. I did it within the U.S. and it worked great!
Although the app appears to function just about anywhere, there is a drawing for a prize which does require that you reside within the UK. Schools and colleges in the UK are particularly encouraged to participate this term. School-based entries received by 30th November 2015 will be entered into a prize draw to win one of 30 Raspberry Pi Starter Packs.
This project comes from the Digital Bubbles team at the universities of Bath, Southampton and Sussex: http://digitalbubbles.org.uk/
