As Henry David Thoreau said: “The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.” And we exchange an alarming amount of our time for digital content. Mindfulness, Mental Resilience and Digital Detox are emerging trends. But even if we want to, very few of us are able to escape the tricks and well-developed strategies content creators use to keep us in their system. Our most valuable good is being stolen while we are slaves caged in a bubble.

Realizing that we cannot free ourselves on our own, A_Wearable was developed to help us resist the lure of all swipeable surfaces.
