Interesting New iPad App: Sensual Cultures
A screenshot from the app
A Twitter follower sent me a link to this intriguing new iPad application Sensual Cultures aimed at hearing people who would like to know more about their Deaf neighbors, and how to interact with them positively. The app was made by a Gallaudet graduate.
The creator describes it thus:
A visual guide to cross-cultural conflicts on how cultures value sight, touch, and sound with the focus on Deaf and hearing people! Sensual Cultures come loaded with case studies (videos) showing the conflicts in “real-time” on H Street NE, an artsy corner in Washington DC. (Well, if you’ve just met a deaf person… this app is for you!)
Unfortunately, I don't have an iPad, so I can't personally try it out. It does look interesting, and it's free. Download it, try it out, and report back.
