Arachne – Digital Spiders!

Sensory Arachne is an accessible early learning sensory resource, simple to use. The digital, colorful spiders spin there way around the screen, following your touch or pointer. Arachne can be used with the Microsoft Adaptive Controller or XBox controller, as well as other pointer devices.

This app could be a useful resource for therapists or special education teachers when working with their students. Arachne could also be a fun activity in a Sensory room as a touch responsive cause and effect app.There are a range of colorful digital spiders and web effects that will either follow your touch or pointer, or run away from your touch.
