dbbug a game for deaf-blind

This game can be played by a deaf-blind person. Others might also like to play it under the table at a boring meeting, or in the opera, without disturbing anyone.

Keep the screen horizontal, and play the game by tilting it. On the screen are a bug and a ball. The ball rolls in the direction you tilt the phone. When it touches the bug, it produces a long vibration, and the bug flies to a new spot on the screen. Your score on the title bar is incremented by 1.

When the ball moves towards the bug, the phone vibrates. The faster it approaches the bug, the longer the vibration pulse.

Narangi2 A Slate for Deaf-Blind Children

Tap the screen to switch between draw and sense modes. To draw, switch to draw mode, upon which you feel a long vibration. Now drag your finger across screen. The drawing is black on orange. The device vibrates while you draw, with a slight change when you cross an existing line. To sense what you have drawn, tap the screen to switch to sense mode. You feel a short vibration. Now simply move your finger on the screen. The device vibrates when there is black color below your finger. To clear the screen, rotate your phone from portrait to landscape or vice versa.

Narangi in Hindi means "orange" which is the color of the background on which you draw. Na rangi, on the other hand, means "without color". Since this is a monochrome drawing app, that seemed like an appropriate name.

This app has been designed with the help of friends from the Homi Bhabha Center for Science Education, Mumbai. It does not collect any data from you.
