SNIFF the dog (Sarah Johansson)

On last year’s IDC, Sarah Johansson presented SNIFF, an interactive, RFID-detecting soft toy for visually impaired children. Every time an RFID-enabled object comes close to Sniff’s nose, the toy gives feedback through sound and vibration.

Johansson: “By focusing on non-visual interactive qualities such as touch, sound and vibration, Sniff is designed with the particular needs of children with sight impairment in mind. But Sniff also works for everyone, young and old, where he becomes a companion in play, work and everyday life.”
