Device warns you if you're boring
A DEVICE that can pick up on people's emotions is being developed to help people with autism relate to those around them. It will alert its autistic user if the person they are talking to starts showing signs of getting bored or annoyed.

One of the problems facing people with autism is an inability to pick up on social cues. Failure to notice that they are boring or confusing their listeners can be particularly damaging, says Rana El Kaliouby of the Media Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "It's sad because people then avoid having conversations with them."

The "emotional social intelligence prosthetic" device, which El Kaliouby is constructing along with MIT colleagues Rosalind Picard and Alea Teeters, consists of a camera small enough to be pinned to the side of a pair of glasses, connected to a hand-held computer running image recognition software plus software that can read ...

A special adaptor for this device is available for churches whose preachers want to keep the congregation awake longer.

Engineer, it sounds like those old Puritans still needed something to tell them when there assembly was annoyed.

I have one of these devices on my telephone called an answering machine, but unfortunately I defeat it too often by anwering the phone instead of it for solicitors.

I'm glad to be me and am happy just the way I am, no matter if somebody or some thing (as in this device) thinks I'm boring. Maybe they are just discontent or have attention deficit disorder....I guess we need a device for that now .

"Device warns you if your audience is too stupid to follow your brilliant insights, or if they are perhaps too distracted by thoughts of the latest reality TV show to follow your devotional commentary on the words of God."

could also be true....

(Before someone uses this device to somehow paint the RESPONSE of a sinful congregation, as indicative of the CONTENT of a pastor.)

Hey, I'M not boring, YOU'RE just disinterested..

I've heard that the old time
Puritans had a simple version of this for the congregation,..when they would start "showing signs of getting bored", they had feather on one end of a stick, to wake them up with a tickle, and the other end had a knob to rap 'em in the skull if they were really out of it...
