This is Sniff, a soft toy dog in green cotton plush. His carefully crafted exterior qualities don’t reveal that he is anything but a cuddly toy. But wireless technology allows him to ‘sniff’ and react to objects that come close to his nose.
By focusing on non-visual interactive qualities such as tactility, sound and vibration, Sniff is designed with the particular needs of children with sight impairment in mind. But Sniff also works for everyone, young and old, where he becomes a companion in play, work and everyday life.
