A man goes to see a doctor. Doctor asks what seems to be the trouble. The man says, “Doc, I’m depressed. Simply, I can’t sleep sometimes, I can’t eat, I feel down and irritable most days. I just can’t feel ‘happy.'”

The Doctor says, “I’ve got the perfect fix for you. In town tonight is the great clown Pagliacci. He’s hysterically funny and will make you laugh till you cry. You will experience a joy unprecedented.”

The man bursts into tears. The doctor, confused asks why. “Doc, I am Pagliacci.”


Electronic instruments allow for a unparalleled level of potency.

However, their power is often is misguided and lost within layers and layers of application.

Tools that were created to connect users, often cause users to craft an image that strain the rift of disconnect, spiraling into depression.

Our product simplifies the cluttered process and allows users to cry into a pillow to directly support an unfeeling avatar.

Hopefully this candid approach can serve either as an apt metaphor for a lost generation, or a wake up call to end the self-fueling fire of emotional detachment and sadness.
