It’s not about the devices we make; it’s about the people those devices serve.
In 2012, school psychologist Rich Brancaccio paid us a visit. He sought assistance in creating a device to gently keep wandering young minds on task in the classroom.
Rich had passion and purpose, but he lacked funding. Our experience in devising wearable technology coupled with our commitment to youth, made it easy to take on Rich’s idea, gratis.
We revamped the schedule and assigned a team to the project. Development took 24 months. This work brought the RE-vibe into existence. The RE-vibe is a pre-programmed wristband that lightly vibrates when it senses the wearer’s mind has drifted. It is generally targeted to children with ADHD or autism, but it works for anyone who struggles with focus.
The RE-vibe launched on Kickstarter last week to raise funds needed to create production molds and bring the product to market. It takes a village.
