Why We Designed Particle
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.
Particle 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.
"Long-distance makes me feel like our relationship is on pause, and Particle is a way for me to press 'play' again. "

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.
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.
