Overcome sensorial overload With video games
According to different studies, people with Auditory and Visual Hypersensitivity (AVH) usually experience sensory overload while playing video games, due to explosive colors, bright lights, and loud noises. Through the lens of Design Thinking, a prototype was created to attempt to mitigate the uncomfortable experience of playing overstimulating video games with AVH.
