Boredom Alert

Boing boing reports on a device that will tell a person if they are boring.

The “emotional social intelligence prosthetic device” is a camera that clips on eyeglasses and feeds images to a small computer that uses image recognition software to characterize emotions. If the listener doesn’t seem to be engaged, the device vibrates to alert the wearer.

I suspect I might have been shaken to death by marginal revenue this week. This surely is in the category “you don’t want to find out this way.”
