Amazon Device Wants To Know Your Emotional State
AMAZON MIGHT BE WORKING ON A SMART WATCH THAT CAN SENSE YOUR FEELINGS.
(CNN) – Amazon wants you to express yourself.
Bloomberg reports that Amazon is testing a wearable device that uses the sound of your voice to read how you’re feeling.
Some of the technology is patented; one patent application shows a woman saying ‘Alexa I’m hungry’ while coughing.
The device hears that the woman is sick and offers a soup recipe; as well as suggesting she buy cough drops.
It’s unclear how far along the project is, or if it will ever become a commercial device.
When asked about it, Amazon said it doesn’t comment on rumors or speculation.
