Delighted to announce that IIIT Delhi students Angel Walia, Mayank Jain, Varnika Kairon, Prakhar Goel under the mentorship of Dr Rajiv Ratan Shah competed and selected at international level Student Game Competition at CHI 2020 for their innovative product contribution under the category: innovative interfaces.
Critical components of today’s video games is their ability to provide life-like visuals. Using excellent graphics quality, they offer an immersive gaming experience to its users. However, graphics prove to be ineffective when we delve into developing games for the visually impaired. In our work, we explore how haptics and tactile interfaces can be harnessed to provide the visually impaired a better gaming experience. We have proposed the use of audio plus haptic data exchange between the user and the system. We have created a gaming console that is light, portable, easy to use and reprogrammable to provide the visually impaired a new source of entertainment.
A complete Product design & development cycle is supported by Design & Innovation Lab HCD Dept IIIT Delhi.
