Blindfold Fireworks (#191)

IEP Objectives :  ECC Games for Visually Impaired Students

IEP Technologies is our new organization where we are building ECC games for visually impaired students, based on each student’s Individual Educational Plan. 
The child’s progression in acquiring skills in our curriculum-based games will be stored in a private secure cloud, visible to the school IEP team  in a web-based console . 
If you are a TVI , click for more information on learning about these types of games as a tool for maximizing student outcomes, relating to their 
504 school plan


One of the simplest games I’ve built was inspired by watching and listening to the July 4th fireworks last year.  Since July 4th is just around the corner, Blindfold Fireworks should become popular again.

Here’s what one person told me: “I love the Blindfold Fireworks. I enjoy conducting my own audio fireworks display. This is awesome! I also enjoy the sounds as the rockets fly through the air.”
The game is so simple, even a toddler can use it.  Each time you tap on the screen, you hear a short explosion, about two to four seconds long.  Tap with two fingers for a longer explosion.  Swipe up for a short whistle or rocket launch.  Swipe down for a longer whistle and rocket launch.
Swipe left to ignite a sparkler, and swipe right to drop that sparkler into a bucket of water.  Fire safety, after all, is important.

Once your show is over, you’ll hear the crowd scream and applaud your fireworks show.  To download the app, tap here:
