designer's own words:Visual impairment continues to interfere with early learning develoment in new born and young children. Sensory Pods are dedicated to satisfying non-visual sensory needs and enjoyment of visually impaired infants and toddlers. These pods encourage interactive play through means of sound, light, scent and texture. Sensory pods can be hung anywhere in a living environment to initiate play and exploration, through these possible interactions care-givers and parents are provided a platform on which they can establish learning exercises. Since visual impairment does not mean complete blindness, this tactic is especially useful for the diagnosis of developmental delays.
