All this week we’ve been looking at how technology is helping people with disabilities approach their lives in new ways. Today we hear from a guy who is looking toward the future of accessibility. Paul Louden is a Google Glass Explorer. The Texan scored an early pair of the wired glasses by telling Google he was on a particular mission: to help people with autism. He himself has autism and he thinks Glass could help with a common challenge for people like him.

Louden joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss. Click on the audio player above to hear more.
