Co-located games created by children with visual impairments

Abstract

The present paper reports on a games workshop within the ABBI EU project involving children with visual impairments as co-creators. The created games show that it is possible to create fun, rich and social co-located games with wearable technology employing very simple interactivity. Having a device that makes a sound when you move allows for the creation of finding and avoiding games but also for “sneaking” games where the goal is to avoid activating the sound. Natural sounds were seen to enhance the playfulness of the activity.
