Samsung creates a language that only uses emoji for those who can not talk anymore

More than 3 million people around the world suffer from mental illnesses that prevent them from getting 100% on a daily basis. Aphasia is one of those neurological diseases that prevent people from communicating normally. In Italy, Samsung and the Leo Burnett agency decided to help these people by creating the "Wemogee" app.

Starting from the premise that emoji is the universally understood language of all, and that illustrates its emotions, Samsung has built a chat application that allows for discussion with people with mental disabilities. Because yes, even if these people have trouble with words, they fully understand emojis that refer to emotions. An excellent initiative that demonstrates Samsung's desire to be closer to the needs of its consumers.
