Painteraction: realtà aumentata per l'inclusione

Painteraction is an augmented reality tool that was tailored to children with ASD needs. It gives the possibility of having a visual feedback of body movements, thus giving a sensori motor integration and reducing the anxiety of face to face interaction. It allows the user to be immersed in his/her own images, drawing just by moving the hands or by emitting sounds. It is an inclusive tool because every child enjoys playing on a screen just using body movements.
