Stumbled upon this design concept by Yunfan Tan from Shanghai. Magic Emotion are glasses that enhance emotional expressions by combining LED technology with animation & internet expressions.
How would it work?
There is a new LED material called lightform that could be used on the glasses. The problem is how does the eyewear know your emotion? Yunfan imagined a kind of micro detector.Â It could detect yourÂ expression,Â blood pressure,Â heartbeat etc. to know your emotion.
We know such technology is almost available (see Afectiva by Rosalind Picard), so who knows… perhaps we will be enhancing our emotional expressions through our glasses pretty soon from now! 😉
