Having a bad day? Imagine if your computer was tuned into your emotions.
MIT's Media Lab in the US believes that computers that are responsive to our feelings are not far away.
The Institute is running a conference this week which will look at where the computer industry has got to with computers in terms of feelings.
"We want to make machines that are not only intelligent in the traditional sense, but also emotionally smart," commented Rosalind Picard, associate professor at MIT's Media Lab.
We've seen wearable computers. This is the next stage: computers that are also emotional, in touch with our feelings - and even ingestible.
This new generation of computer will get rid of all the computer rage we feel when our systems crash or we cant work out how to carry out a function.
The conference will include a peek view at a conductor's jacket that can turn movement into music, and gloves that can read skin conductivity and illuminate accordingly.
