It can be difficult for a child with autism to convey how they are feeling to their parents, so the conceptual 'AMICA' smart toy is positioned as an intuitive piece of equipment to help with the process.

The toy works by integrating a digital display that will show the child different facial expressions that are linked with a game to help them learn about feelings. The various emotions are centered on a story to help users learn more wholly about the feeling to ensure that they garner a better understanding and learn on their own terms.

The 'AMICA' smart toy is the design work of product design student Jugjeevan Brar and acknowledges the need for more health-focused solutions that are designed with younger users in mind.
