The Moment device is a wearable that aims to correct one of modern technology's more socially alienating aspects.

While smartphones, smart watches, and countless other devices make it easier than ever to get information and notifications anywhere, people often prioritize checking the information on their devices over communicating with the people in front of them. The Moment device is a unique wearable that allows users to internalize information and notifications without ever breaking eye contact or interrupting a conversation.

Worn on consumers' wrists, the Moment device uses incredibly precise vibrations to transmit information. Far beyond just numbered pulses for different notifications and tasks, the Moment device uses four brushless linear resonant actuators that can train consumers to recognize the feel of anything from a sports score to caller ID for the individual person placing a call or text.
