COMPANION BRACELET is an anti-lost child bracelet linked to an app for autistic children. Using this, guardian deliver a visual sign, instead of difficult languages, to pre-train a child against from missing. In real situation, guardian's app updates child's location. Simultaneously, the child's bracelet, linked to the app, catches eyes of the child distracted by changing its shape like a transforming robot. It has elements that autistic children feel stable and like, such as three dimensions, repetition, light. The pre-trained child that "My bracelet is working = My guardian is coming to me" stops walking and looks at this calmly.
