Road Map

Developing quality software is quite challenging, especially in a field as vast and still unknown as autism.

Our development work continues unabated, especially thanks to private donations and sponsorships, which allow us to use the latest technologies on the market.

The ideas to be realized are many, as well as the objectives to be achieved, but we take one step at a time.

If you want to stay updated on our initiatives follow us on twitter.

The following are the projects under construction:

"Puzzle Classic 2: United Artist"

After "Puzzle Classic" we want to make a second version with exclusive contents.

The basic idea is to enhance the digital works of artists in multiple fields: exclusive drawings, music, graphic user interface.

We want to expand the content of the game so that "players" can interact for longer thanks to more puzzles and music.

We invite both emerging and established artists to participate in the project: the aim is to create a second game that can help autistic people.

"hoootPocket"

The magic formula of a video game is: ... to entertain the player, satisfying him!

Imagine in a person with autism being able to get gratification while playing while learning.

With this premise the idea of creating a video game inspired by classics of the past was born: Tetris™, Bubble Puzzle™, Bejeweled™

Combine shapes and colors in a grid. Coupling identical shapes and colors cause a fading effect of the objects (satisfaction) and the cascade of the objects above are the basis of the idea of "hootPocket".

We are developing game design in collaboration with rehabilitation centers and our "Volunteers", professionals in the "disability" and "Videogames" sector.

"interCom"

interCom is our most ambitious project.

In summary, it is an information platform that exploits the proven industrial platform created by digitalCode: "Morgana".

The initial aim is to create a collection of data focused on autistic people, both by rehabilitation centers and by families. With this information system it is possible to monitor the person being treated 24/7 and process support data to the professionals of the rehabilitation center or research center.

Once a family-center channel has been created, it will be possible to maximize the time for collecting and processing information, eliminating the time lost by traditional information channels or creating new ones where they do not exist.

The tools used will be all the information systems capable of managing the information: PC, Mac, Linux, Smartphone and Tablet.

The project is still under study. For all the updates follow us on Twitter.

"Augmented / augmentative reality"

Finding adequate and specific software for augmentative communication for both computers and mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) is difficult and what is generally offered or is paid for and therefore not accessible to most people or even worse is developed by people not directly involved in the world of autism: this involves the development of often superficial IT solutions for a whole series of obvious reasons (a software developer is in any case an intermediate means between the request and the solution and re-elaborates it in a subjective way according to his level of knowledge ).

What we want to create is free software that can be used in a dynamic and simple way by users: we want to untie the operation of the software from a single device and make it global. How does all this translate? Simple: by developing a platform specifically designed for augmentative communication, we are able to create infinite communication channels with all available IT means; a practical example: Using and administering the software simultaneously between different mobile devices or via the web.

The study and implementation of the software is the result of teamwork involving software developers, rehabilitation centers, researchers, parents' associations and all people personally involved in the world of autism who share their experience adding a very precious value. added to the project.

One more step: today it is possible to create hardware / software products at a low cost but with a high potential capable of creating "physical" devices (such as a series of buttons) that can interact with specially developed software. It would be fantastic to be able to create hardware projects open to everyone (open source) to be able to connect the augmentative communication software to "physical" devices, so as to further simplify the use of the software itself. With the "open Source" formula, once the hardware has been prototyped, we will publish the projects so that they can be created by anyone who wishes.
The ultimate mission is, and always will be, to help people with autism!

The project is still under study. For all the updates follow us on Twitter.

"Amplify the senses, everywhere"

The need to find alternative ways of processing the external world in autistic people is well known. Verbal communication is almost always not effective so the other senses are used as a receptive channel.

Inspired by the Tokyo digital museum created by Team Lab Borderless we would like to create sensory devices not only for associations but also for the family environment, using hardware within everyone's reach and above all that can be built independently and modularly. The project is part of our "open project" philosophy.

Sensory setups already exist, we are well aware of this, but unfortunately they are expensive and subordinated to strict business / economic policies. A project like this developed within "Andy's Project" must have minimal impact on costs but focus on the results it can achieve.

I invite engineers, designers and professionals in the rehabilitation sector to participate in the project by registering as "Volunteers".

Interactive Fairy Tales

In autistic people, play as an educational method is an excellent two-way learning channel.

Inspired by role-playing games (RPGs) we want to recreate classic fairy tales (such as those of the Grimm Brothers: Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, etc.) as an interactive video game.

The aim is to try to identify the "player" as the main character of the fairy tale and through his choices during the game to learn (or consolidate) new concepts that can also be useful in the "real world" (such as the danger).
The game will not have a linear story but will be subject to the actions taken during the game that determine the plot.

The game will be developed taking into account the communication difficulties: it will be fully narrated, subtitled and supported by the symbols of augmentative communication.

The project is still under study. For all the updates follow us on Twitter.

   The first interactive fairy tale is in development: "Snow White lives in Japan ?!".

New ideas

"Andy's Project" has only one purpose: to help autistic people.

If you have new ideas, suggestions or want to actively participate in the implementation of projects, sign up as "Volunteer" or use our contact form.

If you represent an association (public or private), an institution, a research center, a rehabilitation center or any other official entity linked to the world of autism, we invite you to participate in the project by registering as " Cooperant "

Together we can change things, together we can achieve the impossible!

If you like me are struggling day by day non-stop, you will understand the importance of "Andy's Project" and the importance of acting quickly and globally.
