When Videogames Have No Video: Haptic And Non-Visual Games


Imagine playing Halo by sound only! Videogames have prioritized the visual experience at the expense of other senses, and leave out gamers who are visually-impaired. This presentation demonstrates a series of non-visual games I have created that use vibration, sound, and other haptic feedback with custom electronics and the Arduino platform. I will also talk about design challenges for haptic games, building custom circuits and code for haptic devices, and strategies for creating meaningful game experiences without visuals.
