The Autism Simulator is designed for educational institutions, organizations, medical and therapeutic professionals, companies, family members, or simply anyone who wants to understand autism.
The Autism Simulator invites you into the sensory world of an autistic individual. Through a virtual reality headset, you’ll fully experience how hypersensitivity, sensory overload, and synesthesia feel.
The ability to experience sounds, lights, patterns, and disturbing elements, as autistic individuals do, shapes the revealing insight into their daily experiences.
We believe the Simulator will create more understanding, empathy, and respect in the world.
You will recognize feelings experienced by a person with autism in a coffee shop. Firstly, you will perceive the environment as a “normal” person. Then the simulation turns into autism. The difference will be apparent.
In this simulation, you will experience a typical day at school as an autistic person. Stimuli such as trampling feet, tweeting birds outside the window or strong sunlight enormously distract you while the teacher is speaking. It becomes very difficult for you to pay attention.
In the last simulation, you are a person with autism waiting for a tram. While a person without autism might not be disturbed by the stimuli like ticking traffic lights or a dog bark, the autistic person is distracted by them enormously.
Please note that we do not sell and ship hardware.
