#20 Project Daredevil bringing immersive media to the Visually Impaired - Matthew Shifrin, Daniel Levine
Matthew Shifrin has been visually impaired his entire life and is working with Daniel Levine on Project Daredevil to make comics available in a more inclusive and accessible format than what currently exists. They are doing this with an experimental headset that allows for new sensations such as the feeling of flipping, falling through a portal and utilize that to immerse users into the scene. The core focus on the project is to make Daredevil, the only blind super hero, acessible to the visually impaired.
