Why Tangible?
Distance takes away our ability to enjoy the meaningful everyday interactions that make being in-person so magical – the warm embrace, the touch on the shoulder, the playful poke, the gentle arm squeeze.

Physical touch makes communication simpler, and gives us the power to soothe and support. We lose these abilities when we're miles apart.

Tangible recaptures this lost magic and brings it back to your relationship, in a delightfully cozy way that adds new dimensions to how you share love over distance.
Our Design Journey
We're a small founding team tackling an extremely challenging design problem: how to feel present over distance.
See how far we've come:
Our three co-founders (Akshay, Katie, & Paul) came together in 2021, with the goal of creating a magical solution that could fill the gap of distance.

After building & testing 50 different concepts with over 200 long-distance couples, we successfully launched Tangible on Kickstarter, and were featured as a "Project We Love."

We've already witnessed countless magical moments of Tangible users enjoying a new dimension of presence over distance.

Now, we're excited to share Tangible with the world, and continue making our solution as fulfilling as it can be.

App is available on both Android & iOS
  • How many Tangible pillows are included?
    2 – One pillow for you, and one pillow for a loved one!
  • Can we ship to two different addresses?
    Yes! We can ship pillows together (one address) or separately (two addresses). Free worldwide shipping to most countries.
  • Do you support both iOS & Android?
    Yes! Our app is available for both platforms.
  • Does Tangible work over any distance?
    Yes, as long as there is a cellular signal or Wi-Fi connection.
  • What do the touch sensations feel like?
    Tangible uses a combination of warmth, compression (the pillow is weighted), and soothing vibrations to create comforting, immersive sensations throughout your upper body – thoughtfully designed to elicit the same oxytocin (the "love hormone") response that real-life hugs generate. Tangible can also recreate specific, delightful feelings – like the sensation of popcorn popping, or a relaxing massage.
Taking 'the distance' out of long-distance.
Compelled by painful personal experiences of distance separation, we founded Tangible to help anyone who is craving the physical coziness and magical spontaneity of being in-person with a special loved one in their life.
