MINECRAFT - HACK FOR GOOD
Lead: Brad Smith
Marketing: Kara Costa
Visual Designer: Jaina Rodriguez
Developers: Alex Mullans
We wanted to provide a solution to allow vision impaired users to experience Minecraft. The developers and Head of Marketing, Kara Costa, worked with volunteers who were vision impaired to build an experience that went beyond sight.
After weeks of planning and ideation, the team came up with an amazing experience that surpassed expectations during Hack week. The Minecraft team was so pleased with the results that they took components of the code built for Hackathon, in the hopes that they can make Minecraft fully accessible, someday.
