NOVIS is an innovative startup with a social impact created to realize the idea of a gaming platform that can also be used without sight, to give blind and visually impaired people the opportunity to independently experience the physical and emotional dimension of a video game. The system includes a mobile app and a joystick. To play, simply connect the controller to the mobile phone and start a game: the player is automatically guided in the virtual environment by vibrations and 3D sound.
