Wouldn't it be great if your computer could recognize when you're frustrated with it and adjust itself to calm you down? Emotion-sensing technology could someday allow a computer to do just that. Computer scientist Christian Peter of the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics in Rostock, Germany, and his colleagues are working on a system that collects data about a person's emotional state using sight, sound and touch technology. 

The system then interprets the information and reacts accordingly. For example, if a computer senses that its user is agitated, it might tone down the background color of the screen, turn down background music, enlarge or reduce graphics, adjust the flow of information being presented to the user or simply apologize.

Would you buy a computer that could sense your emotions and respond to you accordingly?

I would love a computer that apologises. I would purposesly hit the keys harder to make it say sorry. I think the next step after this would be computers with emotions...man...my computer would hate me so much...
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 2/13/06 - 11:52:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
That would be cool, but I wouldn't buy one.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 2/13/06 - 12:39:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd buy it, sounds good and you wouldn't be so tempted to punch the screen.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 2/13/06 - 1:02:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
How much?
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 2/13/06 - 10:36:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
This might freak me out a little.
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 3/4/06 - 8:00:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
wow thats amazing!
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 3/16/06 - 9:00:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's exactly what I need.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 4/5/06 - 6:11:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I like the computer I have.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 5/4/06 - 9:36:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes, it would be nice if it could figure out the exact music that you need to be listening to at that point in time and play it for you…all the while, adjusting it while you mood changes.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 5/25/06 - 12:18:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wonder if that might actually make it worse for some people... like myself.

But then again, who knows... maybe it could actually work.

16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 7/3/06 - 5:42:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't like one that would know my emotions, but sometimes I wish my computer could "feel" so I could beat the crap out of it when it made me mad.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 7/3/06 - 6:44:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, but one that does its job would be nice for a change
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 7/3/06 - 4:22:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
I dont know. Wouldnt that be just a tad creepy?
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 7/3/06 - 4:23:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
It would be really nice. It would be scary though.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 7/25/06 - 11:37:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Thats a bit creepy... You are depressed so your computer either kills you or tells you your a good person...
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 7/25/06 - 11:50:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, that seems interesting but knowing me I wouldn't be able to afford it.
16 yrs ago - Monday 9/18/06 - 8:18:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
No I wouldn't.
16 yrs ago - Monday 9/18/06 - 10:46:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
If this trend continues, computers will start offering counseling. Could be helpful for small problems.
16 yrs ago - Monday 9/18/06 - 11:35:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd take a hammer to it the second I saw it.
16 yrs ago - Sunday 9/24/06 - 2:04:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
holy poo.. that would be so tight.. but it might weird me out a bit.. especially if it was right.. and gave me advice.. but then again you could get it to do some things and tell you things other people might not want to.. hmm... good question
16 yrs ago - Monday 9/25/06 - 8:17:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Does that also mean if ur horney it'll take u to a cinema for adult viewing site?
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 11/4/06 - 11:25:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
It makes me think of that movie where the computer house went nuts and tried to kill everyone.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 11/4/06 - 11:27:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I'd honestly be curious to see how that would work. I mean, it might be a bit on the creepy side, but that really sounds interesting.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 6/23/07 - 8:15:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
It sounds interesting. Maybe.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 7/28/07 - 2:30:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Lol
If you're horny would cinema for adult viewing pop up?
