MIT Engineer Develops “Emotion-Reading” Glasses

Let’s face it — sometimes, we’ve all wished that we knew what someone was thinking. Popular show “Lie to Me” emphasized how interesting it would be to read a person’s honesty based on their facial expressions. Well, an engineer at MIT has developed an innovative pair of glasses that could help you read someone’s emotions.

Rosalind W. Picard is the brain behind these glasses which act as an “extra sense” for the wearer. A tiny earphone whispers in your ear, identifying facial expressions with words like “disagreeing” or “confusion”. There’s also a tiny red light that blinks when the other person wishes you would stop talking.

Frankly, I’m not sure I want to know what everyone is thinking, or what their facial expressions really mean. Didn’t Mel Gibson learn his lesson in “What Women Want”?
