Emotion Aware Google Glass App
Google Glass has been around in limited availability now for almost two years. And while it hasn’t caught on with the masses of the general population, there is a devoted group of developers creating new and interesting apps for GLASS that have amazing possibilities. Emotient Technologies is one company in the research space that has recently come up with a new and exciting development in the GLASS app world. They have leveraged their facial expression recognition software to create a new GLASS app that detects and analyzes human facial expressions and gives you a read out on emotional characteristics.
The GLASS application takes advantage of Emotient’s core technology to process facial expressions and provides an aggregate emotional read-out, measuring overall sentiment (positive, negative or neutral); primary emotions (joy, surprise, sadness, fear, disgust, contempt and anger); and advanced emotions (frustration and confusion). The Emotient software detects and processes anonymous facial expressions of individuals and groups in the Glass wearer’s field of view. The emotions are displayed as colored boxes placed around faces that were detected, where the color indicates the automatically recognized emotion.
Emotient will demonstrate its emotion-aware Google Glass application at the 12th Annual VSS Dinner and Demo Night on May 19, 2014 from 6 – 10 p.m. at Vision Sciences Society 2014 at the TradeWinds Island Resorts, St. Pete Beach, Florida.
