A backpack designed for autistic people
to deal with panic attack in crowded environments

Hux is a backpack designed for people with autism to combat the phenomenon of panic attacks in crowded environments for people with autism. Unlike existing autism calming measures that can only be used at home, the Hux's transformable appearance allows it to enter more social situations without attracting too much attention. The ultimate goal is to help people with autism avoid possible self-harm and stereotypical behaviours, and to reduce the mental burden of integration into society.
