“What if you could download the muscle memory of a pro athlete?”

This was the initial concept for Remo Haptics. Evan and Aaron joined forces in a collaborative class between NYU Tandon and Pratt. When they realized the commercial potential of the idea, they asked their then professor Rebeccah, with her  experience bringing wearable tech products to market, to join the team.

Remo Haptic Training is a team of designers with a unique vision of wearable technology that moves beyond the tiny wrist-worn screen. We believe that wearable tech can be better. It can go beyond capturing and displaying data. It can provide the guidance of a coach, perfecting an athlete's performance with haptic based touch correction in real time.
