The Emotion Whisperer is a subtle tool that can prompt the visually impaired with the body language they’re otherwise missing out on.
It comes with a pair of camera glasses that sends images of conversation partners to an emotion recognition app.
These are analyzed and translated into a sensory signal: emotions like attention, surprise or happiness are felt by a specific vibration of the small device in the palm of your hand. You can actually feel someone smiling.
The following ZIP-file includes Hi-Res images and a description of the project.
