Microsoft UK is developing a "senior PC", which will have a simple interface and be aimed at older users.
The PC will come with software that allows users to manage prescriptions as well as simplified tools for everyday use, such as managing photos.
The machine, which it is developing in partnership with charities Age Concern and Help the Aged, is one of several projects the firm is working on.
The plans were unveiled at a Digital Inclusion conference in London.
