From Emotion Sensor Seats to Feeling-Based Cosmetics

 - Jan 12, 2011   Updated: Mar 31 2011
Modern technology has taken the concept behind mood rings and applied it to a variety of everyday items and electronics. Incorporating human emotion has become a prevalent attribute to many gadgets we've featured on Trend Hunter.

From emotion-sensitive cell phones to clothing that react to your personal vibes, these mood-based innovations reflect how you're really feeling.

Implications - Technology can be a major advantage that makes life way more convenient for consumers in a myriad of ways, but it is often times impersonal, cold and ultimately apathetic to the inevitable emotional highs and lows of its users. This is one of technology's biggest drawbacks, but any company that manages to mitigate this disadvantage is definitely going to appeal to a huge amount of consumers who want more responsive, sensitive and intuitive technological gadgets in their life.
