Andromeda is an audio-tactile gaming system that promotes socially inclusive play between visually impaired and sighted individuals.

In the UK, over 2 million people have severe visual impairments (VI). Since the rapid development of consumer electronics and digital media in the past decade, those with VI are increasingly feeling left behind.

Through our research, design and engineering process Controller M31 was created which expands the non-visual output of existing games, opening up the possibility for people with severe visual impairments to explore digital spaces and fully experience games.
