Amazon is reportedly working on a smartwatch that is capable of reading human emotions
Amidst the US-China Trade war, Amazon is cooking a new delicacy for its many customers- a strapable watch that uses voice activation to read the human emotion. Let’s say you are very happy while wearing the device, the watch can actually read out something like ” Hello user, your current model is slightly above normal, which is considered as happy”, I guess you must have found that very hilarious as well.
While this is the first attempt of the company in the wearable market, it is hoping to offer something that is entirely different from what is already available. The device that is codenamed ‘Dylan’ will be working in sync with a smartphone app, and it is said to have microphones that can “discern the wearer’s emotional state from the sound of his or her voice.” Also in the report, the technology could reach a point where it does advise the wearer how to interact more effectively with others.
The device is being developed by Lab126 and the Alexa software team internally. Lab126 is known for having developed the Kindle, Kindle Fire, Fire TV, Fire Phone, Echo smart speaker, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap, so it certainly has the required experience to create an Alexa-using wearable (beyond Alexa Earbuds).
For now, it is still unclear what type of wearable to expect, whether a fitness tracker or a smartwatch which seems like the perfect guess. Well, all of this is still yet to be officially confirmed, so don’t put it to heart, lest you get disappointed.
