Inclusive play is a project developed by the NID DESIS Lab, India, which corresponds to the series of Thematic Areas. These projects are activities carried out by the DESIS Network Labs, whose objectives can be seen here
The magic of augmented reality lies in its power to let us see the unreal in our surroundings. Medo uses this power to stimulate imaginative or pretend play in 3-6 year old children also catering to differently abled children who may have difficulties or delays in imaginative capabilities. Multiple sessions of playing with Medo empower the children embark on the imaginative journey on their own.
The objective of this project was to pick and study recent trends in technology and design, identify gaps and opportunity areas with respect to those trends and design a product that incorporates the element of play while addressing those gaps and opportunities. The two trends of Augmented reality and Inclusive play keeping differently abled children in mind was taken up.
