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 ...

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

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 .
