See With Sound

Did you know that people can echolocate in the same way as bats and dolphins?! It’s a fairly new discovery that has scientists (and designers) talking. The Echolocation Trainer was designed as a learning game for parents with visually impaired children that helps develop the ability of using sound to “see” surroundings. Making “clicks” with their mouths, players become sensitive to the reflected sounds, helping them identify shapes, objects and textures within the game. Anyone can do it!
