Moment is an app and haptic device that works hand in hand to assist with on-the-spot decision making for individuals with visual impairments.

Individuals can also pin haptic ques in specific locations and customize their haptic settings for a more effective and personalized navigation experience. 

Globally, at least 2.2 billion people have a vision impairment or blindness

The Problem

People who are visually impaired struggle to quickly adapt to vast and drastic environmental changes that disturb their mental maps.



Moment is a haptic device that assists with on-the-spot decision making for individuals with visual impairment. Moment provides directional cues when users are faced with an environmental obstacle in their path.
