We reduce loneliness and social isolation through warm technology. Our devices have been specially designed help two of the most vulnerable groups of society.
For the elderly we created KOMP, a simple one-button device with a large high-contrast screen which allows pictures and messages to be sent and video calls to be made direct to their home. No login details or passwords are required by the senior, they simply turn it on and off with a large button. Their loved ones each have an app on their phones which allows them to send content to the KOMP device, just like a private social media feed.
For children and young adults with long-term illness we made AV1, allowing the user to attend school or social occasions remotely. The robot-like device contains a camera, microphone and speaker so that when the user is too ill to be somewhere, AV1 can go instead. The user controls AV1 with an app which displays what the camera can see, providing 360 degree rotation, emotive facial expressions and the ability to talk at varying volume levels.
