I was just fishing out some links for a friend of mine and thought people on
this group may be interested.

 

I attended a Music Technology conference in November and two of the speakers
were from Utrecht school in the Netherlands.

 

One of the projects which they spoke about I found particularly interesting
- an audio based game for Blind people. The game is called demor and
involves a GPS kit, laptop, head sensor, headphones, and handheld button
thingummy-doo-dahh..

 

 

Here's some links about it:

http://student-kmt.hku.nl/~g7/site/ (the Demor site but it's in Dutch!)

 

Here's some other similar games. Sneller/Drive was also created by students
at HKU

www.soundsupport.net <http://www.soundsupport.net/> also has a few links to
some other audio games but I don't read Dutch so I struggled reading that
lot.
