Amazon is the world’s second company to reach a $1,000,000,000,000 valuation after Apple. Amazon constantly launches new products such as Amazon Echo and Amazon Dash. With the Amazon Alexa, Amazon has already known everything about a specific user. Now, Amazon is working on a new tracking wearable which can tracks a user’s emotions too.
How it works is, Amazon Alexa will be able to determine the user’s mood and responds back according to their feeling. For example, if a person feels sad, Amazon will tracks the person’s mood and then reply in a soft manner. Not only that, there are more other emotions such as happiness, anger, and boredom. Amazon has already patented it to let Alexa do the replying based on the user emotion.
According to Bloomberg, the emotion-tracking wearable device is a product of Alexa and Lab126 hardware team. As for now, Amazon research teams are testing this product internally with the code name “Dylan”. There is a possibility this product could be realized soon. This is because, Amazon’s’ Echo Buttons is one of Amazon experiment within its hardware team. There are some experimental products which did not pass the internal trial phase.
In conclusion, if you watch the movie Back to the Future, you might realize how technology has evolved within us. We might not expect an emotional tracker during those days. Now, it will become a reality where everyone will start to get one of those wearable devices soon.
