A latest report has disclosed that Amazon is currently planning on a wrist worn, voice activated device that can hypothetically read human emotions. Recognized as a health gadget of sort, the Alexa voice software team and Amazon’s Lab 126 division are collaborating to develop the wearable device.
The device which is reported to sync with any smartphone application will also have microphones that can detect the wearer’s emotional state through the sound of his or her vocal sound.
Bloomberg, who disclosed the information after speaking to a source and also reviewing an internal Amazon document, equally added that the upcoming technology might be able to give the wearer advice, most especially on how to relate with others effectively.
While a report in 2018 had reported that Amazon is developing a home robot, its Lab 126 Hardware division has already been responsible for the Fire Phone, Kindle and the Echo Speaker that firstly introduced Alexa to the world. Imagine an Alexa powered robot roaming around your house, washing the dishes and cleaning rugs. This will all become reality soonest!!
