Video: Japanese AffectPhone Concept Delivers iPhone Emotions via Heat

So how would you like to feel the emotions of who you are speaking to on your iPhone? Well apparently Japanese researchers at the Rekimoto Lab have done just that with their AffectPhone project reports an article over on gizmodo.

The AffectPhone project apparently monitors Galvanic Skin Response for conveying emotions through an iPhone handset and uses sensors on the side and back of the iPhone that enable a user to feel heat or cold when holding the iPhone and depending on the emotions of the person on the other end of the connection.

Of course this means both users would require having the sensors on their iPhones to measure the electrical resistance on one iPhone and receive it on the other iPhone.

Seems all very futuristic to me, however we have a video of the project in action and although it is in Japanese you’ll get the gist of what they are showing I think, so hit it up and check it out.
