Kinect and autism!

by manmeetk

The poster session yesterday was so cool! It was fascinating to see different projects and so many amazing ideas being implemented. I was extremely impressed by the “kinect the dots” project. The concept of using kinect to help children with autism to inspire them to learn and get more interested in things, is fabulous! Kudos to the team for coming up with such a great idea. As one of the team members shared that implementing the project was not that difficult once they got the idea and the prototype ready.

I was going through some articles about how kids with autism are able to connect with kinect more than they have ever been with any other games. I found an  interesting article about how Kinect helped a father play with his autistic son.

Hope many more such awesome steps can be taken to help kids be kids 🙂
