Emotions can be complex and as humans we are feeling around 7000 emotions a day where we categorize them down to 25 certain feelings. Unfortunately, individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder also feel 7000 emotions a day but aren’t able to categorize or identify them down. This situation causes them to get overwhelmed by their extreme amount of feelings which could be misunderstood by others and it leads the autistic individual to mask in social situations. My goal to solve this problem is to create a wearable design that will create an emotional empathy system.
