Experience what it is like to be blind

How do you navigate a city when you are unable to see anything? In the game The Blind Experience you are solely dependent on your hearing. You will experience what more than 70,000 people in The Netherlands – and 40 million people worldwide – experience daily, in their homes, on the street, in their lives.

The aim of the game is to navigate through a virtual city, in search of the laboratory of Professor Pieter Roelfsema at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience. On your way, you will encounter many different obstacles.

You will also get to meet Hein Noortman, the businessman who lost his sight in a climbing accident and is determined to raise funding for the development of a visual prosthesis for restoration of vision in the blind. https://theblindexperience.org/
