Experience emotions as a sixth sense
We help neurodivergent people interpret emotions by expressing them as vibrations on a haptic wristband.
HOW IT WORKS
Our proprietary algorithm analyzes the pitch changes in your speech and determines the emotion being expressed.
Our haptic wristband releases a unique vibration specific to the emotion being expressed, enabling people to feel the emotional valence of people they speak to.
People can strengthen their relationships with shared emotional understanding.
THE POWER OF NEURODIVERSITY
We're tired of products forcing traditional methods of learning on a diverse population. At Valence, we value neurodiversity and aren't here to offer a one size fits all product.
Facial expressions and vocal pitch can be hard to read, not just for neurodivergent people. With our wristband, any person can learn to interpret emotions as haptic feedback, a much easier way to understand how your loved ones feel.
