The Touchstone sensory calming device is designed to aid daily life of people suffering from anxiety disorders. Anxiety causes debilitating symptoms in some situations, such as being in crowded places. These situations create a negative thought pattern which increases anxiety further. Based on common anxiety management techniques, as well as zen principles, the Touchstone takes an organic form and smooth texture, encouraging the user to apply motion over its surface. Upon contact with the device, an LED visualiser activates to follow the touch of the user. This reactive device discreetly distracts the user in such problematic situations .
