A Keyboard That Can Gauge Emotions

Posted January 11, 2017 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

This new app uses affective computing to gauge the user's emotions based on various aspects of his or her typing, and sharing that information with the message's recipient to reduce misunderstandings, improve customer service, and even aid in mental health treatment. The application, called Keymochi has been developed for both Android and iOS phones.

I'm sure this will be as successful as 'Auto-Correct' was.

"... and sharing that information with the message's recipient to reduce misunderstandings, improve customer service, and even aid in mental health treatment."

And when it causes misunderstandings - and it will - how does it propose to do damage control? Buy the recipient flowers?

So basically, this keyboard will automatically go into caps lock, mine already does, and I have to back up repeatedly and uncap a cap on everything.

If I am emailing my boss (which I am about to), and it puts on red letter caps lock, I am so outta here.

" and aid in mental health treatment "

Does this mean that there is a port that will dispense my favorite meds ?

Do they REALLY give diplomas for this kind of work?? Do they ALLOW professors to put forth this type of project??

They just ran an analysis of you emotions... and the prognosis doesn't look good.

You would probably be shocked, dismayed by what professors get actual money funded for. It makes me throw up internally.

Maybe it has touch sensitive keys like a musical keyboard.
