MIT group develops ‘mind-reading’ device

Three researchers at the MIT Media Lab have developed a device that “reads minds” and alerts wearers to the emotional state of the person they’re conversing with. The device, called the Emotional Social Intelligence Prosthetic, or ESP, was presented by Rana El Kaliouby on Tuesday at the 2006 Body Sensor Network Conference at the MIT Media Lab. The research team hopes the device will help people with autism learn to better read the social cues of others.
