Harmony / Health and Wellbeing


Harmony is a two-way indirect emotional communication companion designed to enhance relationship management between our loved ones during our natural life changes, such as menopause and puberty.
It works by indirectly expressing the emotions we feel or would like to express to our loved ones using number of advanced existing sensor technologies. This gives individuals awareness of the emotional state of the loved ones and motivates to take action. It encourages indirect communication and expressing feeling, which are sometimes very difficult to do so directly. It is also non intrusive way of managing and being aware of personal health.
