    Play sports like you’ve never done before - using your ears instead of your eyes!

Navigate though the field, other players, and around the equipment using FiiWA’s sound and vibrotactile feedback. Can you and your partner manage to create innovative ways to communicate in order to cross the field, pass the ball, and score more goals than the opposing team with FiiWA? How are your skills when it comes to solo play? Try out your hand/ear coordination with a game of FiiWA Tetherball. . . more info
