Congratulations to Blind Bats, the unanimous Judges’ Choice winner at the 2023 Creative Industries Demo Day!
🚀 Introducing the game-changer: Blind Bats’ Beeping Ball!
We’re thrilled to celebrate Blind Bats’ President, Paul Szep, and his Beeping Ball as the unanimous Judges’ Choice winner at the 2023 Creative Industries Demo Day.
🌟 Aiming to empower the blind community, Blind Bats enables participation in sports events many take for granted. Paul, the president of Blind Bats, presented the 7th prototype of the revolutionary Beeping Ball, with an 8th version already in development.
🎯 This battery-operated cricket ball constantly emits a sound, allowing vision-impaired players to better participate in games through the Bats Sports Club. Having what it takes to become the new international standard for blind cricket, it’s no surprise this innovative product is garnering national and international attention and support from representatives at all three levels of government.
👏 Join us in applauding Blind Bats’ remarkable achievement and stay tuned for more exciting updates!
In the coming days, we’ll share a wrap-up post highlighting the event and the lead up to it, our other talented finalists, their projects, and the prizes awarded from the pool worth more than $21,000!
We’ll also share a gallery of photos from the day, and when ready you’ll get a sneak peek into the event with a video that showcases our participants, judges, and what they have to say about the Creative Industries Demo Day and the impact it’s had on them.
