Why IoT for seniors is a lot tougher than it looks

In an interesting piece reminding us that "it's not their fault, it's yours" if people can't follow your user interface to access features they want or could find useful, Fredric Paul argues that, without more and better thought on usability and proper reconsideration of user interfaces for functionality not just to make it "sexy", IoT "for seniors" will end up no-where, and the potential for devices to help with elder care will never realise their full potential.
Senior citizens are often touted as a huge potential market for the Internet of Things (IoT), but progress may be slower than a retiree with a bad hip.
