Musical Game Idea

| tags: blind, enabling technology, ideas

It's spring break and 50 days until Maze Day ! I'm thinking of a new musical game but I need help with the music . My hidden agenda is getting samples of the sounds children make when they are imitating music instruments. I'll use the samples as a training set for a system to allow spoken input of music but I need a fun activity to motivate kids to give me the samples.

A few minutes in you see him using Navi to help him target items. I really like this idea for an accessible game. You've got a little audio "fairy" to help you know which way to go or where to strike. Also, he must have an amazing mental map of the game world. Perhaps we could sell teachers on games as helping kids build mental maps.
