This new home gadget is sorta like a giant mood ring, only a few thousand dollars more, and rack mountable. The moodSeer home media system automatically creates playlists for you based on your current mood.
Just tell the moodSeer how you’re feeling: relaxed, romantic, inspired, etc… and the system automatically generates a playlist that suits your desired state of mind. The moodSeer features 12 pre-configured “moods” and can simultaneously stream different playlists to up to 36 zone players throughout your house. The whole system can be controlled by a touchscreen wireless remote control, called the “moodBeamer.” It’s also got an on-board CD player for ripping discs, so you don’t need to have a computer hooked up if you don’t want to. They even offer a service where they’ll load your current CD collection onto the moodSeer for you if you don’t have the time or patience to do it yourself.
The system isn’t cheap however, with its base station (a.k.a. “Moodcenter”) running about $4000, and additional zone players (a.k.a. “Moodspot”) costing $1500 each. For that much, I sure hope it has a “depressed” playlist, since that’s how you might feel after you empty your bank account to buy one.
