New Technology Can Track Our Emotions And Attention

October 12, 2011

When I started watching this, I was quite interested in it. But I lost interest when I realised that the report doesn’t cover how such technology could help severely disabled people.

I have friends with severe Cerebral Palsy who cannot communicate verbally. I have always wished I had a way of knowing what they really thought about me, or about what I say to them. Technology like this seems like it could make that wish come true for me. I wish the report had covered that point.

Comments welcome, as always.

    I love posts like this – thank you SameDifference1.
    It seems so super-futuristic, bit spooky it can read your emotions and attention!
    Maybe they never even thought of its application in the realm of people with communication difficulties? Maybe it was approached just from a Psychology/ Physiology point of view?
    I think there must be people who would benefit from the communication options it would give.
    I’ll look forward to seeing more about it!
