Congratulations to Vestina Petrauskaitė, the Master degree student, which final project "Gamified mobility impairment simulation project "Kitonas" for public empathy increase" (work supervisor prof. Aušra Lisauskienė, 2019) won the Best Young Designer 2019 award Public prize in the category of design research and theory

Vestina about the project:
"The simulation project in virtual reality "Kitonas", through positive personal experience, allows us to shape and consolidate the right public attitudes towards people with disabilities. When hearing the voice of a disabled person, physically and emotionally empathizing with a disability it creates a fictitious common experience that later increases and changes the public's perception of the emotions and needs of people moving in a wheelchair."
