Touch the Valley is a 3D topographic puzzle that helps the visually impaired learn about the physical environment through the sense of touch. Taking feedback from the user testing, the playability of the puzzle improved by adding on small features to the puzzle, including magnet feedback, elevational grooves, and smoother edges – enabling users to joyfully immerse in the process of play and exploration without too much of a cognitive load.
