Play With Your Ears Not Your Eyes
I recently received this note from Marty at Kid Friendly Software announcing his new phone app game “Blindfold Racer.” It sounds like fun and even better, IT’s FREE! Check it out and let me know what you think.
Hey Tio Stib,
I created a free iPhone/iPad app called “Blindfold Racer”, where you drive with your ears instead of your eyes. It’s designed for both sighted and visually impaired users, from kids to seniors, and its lots of fun.
Blind gamers found it to be so much fun, that it was rated as the top pick in the AppleVis forum recently.
It was built as a STEM project in he Cushman Middle School (in Miami, FL) and initially tested at Lighthouse for the Blind, Miami (for teens) and the VA Med Center Miami (for seniors).
Your readers may find it interesting – you can download it for free from the app store (Blindfold Racer), or visit the website (http://BlindfoldRacer.com), or read about how we built it (my blog is http://stemmiami.wordpress.com/category/blindfold-racer/)
