Tweet Sleeve: Wear Your Emotions on Your Sleeve
April 26th, 2010
I think social networking is sometimes like over-sharing. Really, do you really need to share every little insignificant detail of your life with the entire universe? Now here’s something that reveals even more about your inconsequential tweets – clothes that tell the whole world how you feel!
The odd thing is that this bit of wearable technology by Vanessa Sorenson is that it doesn’t actually detect your mood using any kind of fancy emotion-sensing sensors. Nope, it just connects to a computer to look at keywords in your tweets to analyze your mood.Flickr Video
The algorithm scans the “mood” of your tweets. This in turn lets the color of the embedded LEDs change, depending on your feelings. Needless to say that you’d probably have to be in Wi-Fi range for this to work. I don’t know about you guys, but I prefer not letting everyone know how I feel. I just write for blogs.
