The Royal London Society for Blind people (RLSB) has hosted its first hackathon, producing a prototype app which matches people through voice, rather than selfies.The app uses six-second voice clips as the "sell", with the focus on personality rather than looks.The more users talk to a match, the more time they unlock to send messages.
The other ideas comprised a community site to help disabled people share experiences of job-hunting, an app that lets a user retrace the steps of another and an app that allows blind people navigate to a destination safely.
