An audio game that teaches blind people to navigate

Very cool news:

The system, developed by a team led by Lotfi Merabet of Harvard Medical School and Jaime Sánchez of the University of Chile, is called the Audiobased Environment Simulator and uses only audio-based cues to allow blind users to learn about the layout of a previously unfamiliar building.

This system seems to operate by the same principle as BlindSide, the iOS horror game that operates purely through audio cues. Could developers commercialize a product to help blind people “see” their world better?
