Is Sarasota Silicon Silver?

It really shouldn’t be a surprise that Florida would be a testbed for senior assistive technologies. But Bloomberg reports that Sarasota County, Florida — which has the highest concentration of seniors of any significant county — is apparently focused on becoming just that.

The story details several startups that are trying out products in Sarasota, where a third of the population is 65 or older.  It focuses on the start-up Lively, which has built a system of motion sensors that of whether things like the TV remote, pillboxes or the front door have been moved.
