Nike is emblematic of the performance mindset . That’s why we created Nike activity wall for blind individuals who have congenital blindness. This wall provides fun, sportive and entertaining activities from reclaimed Nike materials into the surfaces to activate the blind’s individuals body and mind easily. The platform is both for the kids, from the age of 3 to 10, and their families.


The wall is divided into sections such as,

-a dance platform which prevents any possible balance issues by its foam based structure so that blind individuals can dance without worrying about injuring themselves.

-a training platform- walkway

The walk way section of the Nike activity wall provides children and especially young adults a way to stretch and exercise on a daily basis. The wall is nest to instructive stretching moves and mattresses placed upon pressure pads. When the individual needs the instruction of a certain move he moves to the matress , when a weight enters the matress the pads sense it and provide a verbal timer for the individual. 

-an ability developing games section 

the game section provides data for multiple senses. Where you can touch, smell, listen to understand the object. We put 12 different materials to let people guess the object by using other senses than visual ones. For example one of the material is feather, after touching the feather, they can listen the specific bird sound, then figure out, learn and understand things they never knew before. 

-Toy's section

a ball which is connected to a bracelet by bluetooth technology so when lost it will be found easily. 

geometric objects to learn textures and shapes by sense of touching.

Hey there. Very creative and thoughtful idea! Love how you are helping out the blind by creating such a fun product. It's quite a small idea, targeting a small market. Unless you have plans on expanding, it would be good to collaborate or team up with Our Workshop :)
