Description of the product/Prototype/service:
Our poster is a call for working together on an inclusive Metaverse. The internet is evolving from a two-dimensional display on a screen to a three-dimensional virtual environment (Metaverse). The question is how people with a (visual) disability can make optimal use of this rapidly developing display of the internet. Royal Dutch Visio, Centre of Expertise for Partially Sighted and Blind People, and Hanzehogeschool Groningen, University of Applied Sciences, are looking for partners to explore the possibilities for an inclusive Metaverse. We can also show a few applications we developed as a live demo.
Level of innovation:
We show a combination of research and practical applications to use in rehabilitation and education.
