What is Moment?

Your sixth sense

The first step to a
screenless future

Nothing is more natural than our sense of touch. Rather than strapping smaller screens to our wrists, we should be turning our skin into a programmable display.

Adding senses to the
human body

Moment lets you feel information that becomes intuition over time. Modern neuroscience research has shown that our brains are capable of adapting to accommodate new streams of information.

Designed with you
in mind

Moment combines new research in haptic technology with the latest best practices in user interface design and human factors research to provide an experience unlike anything else.
