This Wireless Device Can Read Your Emotions



In the future, you may never have to guess what your clients truly think about that home or transaction. MIT researchers have announced a device that can determine a person’s mood using wireless signals.

MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab created a device called EQ-Radio, which has the ability to identify such emotions as anger, pleasure, joy, and sadness. It bounces wireless signals off a person’s body to make assumptions on their emotions based on the person’s breathing and heart rate. It does not require the user to wear a monitoring device or body sensor for the reading either.

Researchers say that so far their analysis shows that EQ-Radio is 87 percent accurate when it comes to the emotional readings.

The applications of such a device could be widespread, including business applications in getting a better reads on clients and even infused into smart home technology. “EQ-Radio could be used to create smart environments that could adjust lighting, music, or temperature automatically to match a user’s mood,” TechSpot reports.
