Google glass: App measures facial expression Visually impaired persons could benefit
According to the Fraunhofer researchers, the software opens up a host of application options for data glasses. Examples could be auxiliary tools for persons suffering from autistic conditions: Many autistic persons have problems to correctly identify the emotional content of a facial expression. Data glasses could superimpose this information into the person's range of vision. Likewise, visually impaired persons could benefit from the software: The information about a person's facial expression could be converted into an audible signal and fed into an earphone, for instance. Conceivable are also interactive games or market research applications.
