This summer with your help we gathered the resources to create new games for blind children. In Autumn we created them and the children have already started playing and special schools use them. Could you imagine what new opportunities you made possible?
Our plan had further stages, as you know.
Specialists Education Teachers from around the world have requested to be able to create Memor-i games for education and entertainment, own their own. Variations on themes, variations in other languages, etc.
We continued according to plan and sought resources. Thanks to the funding of the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation we can now take this step.
Well, we’re commencing the Memor-i studio!
An application that will allow everyone to make their own Memor-i games for the impaired in vision as well as the sighted, easily and without programming knowledge, and to offer it free to all.
Therefore the work and creativity of one person can be provided freely and free to all, creating a multiplier effect. A game that a Greek makes can be played by blind children in Greece but also in the States, a variation made by a German can be enjoyed in Austria....
Well, no need to say more at the moment. You understand.
We start work and soon you will be informed of the new results!
