What is BlindConsole?

BlindConsole is the first virtual console for blind and visually impaired people.

We want to break down every barrier that restricts the access to autonomous and inclusive entertainment forms. This technology allows to play without using your eyes!


The interaction does not pass through the screen: you will be able to play thanks to acoustic and tactile feedback, which let you literally listen and touch our virtual world.



Features

Our joystick captures arm and hand movements of the player. 



The player hears through the headphones the sounds and the noises of the game. 


It's easy to use:



Step 1: connect by Bluetooth the controller to our mobile App 



Step 2: select the desired game and enter the fantastic virtual environment we have designed for you 



Step 3: follow the audio tutorial and move the controller to interact with the game and to get a realistic feeling on your hand



Step 4: enjoy the game with your friends!


Who are we?

NOVIS is an innovative start-up based in Turin, Italy.

The project was designed for and with blind people. We have developed our product together with several Italian associations of blind and visually impaired people like U.I.C.I and A.P.R.I. of Turin. 

Our team is composed by engineers and experts to get the best product possible.

 Our mission 

We want to create independence and to improve daily life of blind and visually impaired people. We have created a new digital world where emotions and sensations are the main players, and where everyone can have fun in innovative game scenarios.
