Spatial sound game ideas

| tags: blind, sound, enabling technology, ideas

I've been talking with Diane and Anish about ideas for simple sound games that will help children who are blind learn to navigate. I'm writing these notes to help us get on the same page in our understanding about what would be helpful and what might be possible. Of course, much more could be done with the amazing technology Anish has in hand but I'm thinking very simply here to hopefully enable implementation in the web browser so anyone can play online.


Braille Game Ideas

I think I see how to make the DDR pad work with this new generation of browser-based games so I'm thinking about a successor to Braille Twister. I don't know if we'll have it ready for Maze Day but we'll see. I'd like your feedback on the concept.


Programming for kids?

I want 10 year old game programmers working on games for kids with disabilities (and themselves). Given some tools, kids could write simple games that kids who have NO GAMES would enjoy. And maybe get drawn to CS at the same time.


Desensitizing kids with autism to stressful experiences with VR

| tags: enabling technology, autism, ideas

Karen suggests it might be useful to develop VR scenarios to help kids become accustomed to normally stressful audio over stimulation without the added social burden of having to deal with people at the same time. For example, many kids can't go to the movie theater because the THX sound thing at the beginning overwhelms them. If they could experience that THX sound in a controlled environment with gradually increasing volume it might not be so bad when it happened at the theater.
