Anxitox is a piece of emotionally protective wearable technology taking the form of an augmented reality helmet. Using ARkit to detect audience members’ faces, Anxitox provides a script to be read during a presentation while mediating eye contact. Imagine standing in front of thousands of people giving a speech. You become nervous: you start to sweat, forget what to say, and, finally, you grow petrified. The relationship between presenter and audience is delicate but imbalanced, and sometimes the presenter jeopardizes the relationship due to their anxiety. This product allows individuals who suffer from public speaking anxiety to overcome this phobia by transferring the tension from presenter to audience.
