Facial expressions are the most obvious signals for an individual’s present emotion.
However, not all of us are observant or sensitive enough to detect what really lies behind ones facial expression.
In other words, even the sanest and soundest person can fool or otherwise be fooled with such expression that leads us to hide or misinterpret these emotions.
However, in the latest development done by MIT Media Lab, a spectacle can now read an individual’s emotions precisely in 64% than the normal 54% correct interpretation of emotions by an average person.
Apparently, this is a social x-ray glass that has a built-in camera connected to software that analyzes facial expressions.
The primary developers of this emotion glass have intended to pursue this research in order to help those individuals who are suffering from autism.
In some cases, individuals who are found with this syndrome have difficulty in recognizing a person’s emotion during a conversation. So, with the help of the social x-ray glasses, they can cope with the normal social instincts.
Moreover, the built-in camera in this social glass can track 24 points of facial expressions and these will be scanned in a bank of expressions.
Then, a summarized version of emotional information will be relayed through the ear piece telling the user the real emotional state of the individual he converses with.
Basically, the interpretation of the emotion will be accompanied with light that will indicate the person is in agreement, if the light is green, while red if he is not.
In so far, this technology is very helpful and currently it is being developed for market testing to be used for advertisements and movies as well.
