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.
