Mood Sweater Reveals a Wearer’s Emotion
(NEW YORK) -- There’s a fashion update to the mood ring of the 1970s -- the mood sweater. Embedded with sensors, the GER Mood Sweater, from the design lab Sensoree, features LEDs around the collar that change with the wearer’s emotions. Sensoree says the sweater uses technology that is based on the lie detector test, which uses a Galvanic Skin Response, or GSR for short.
Hand sensors connected to the sweater measure excitement levels and translate that info into various colors on the collar. Blue means calm or peaceful, pink means excited, yellow means ecstatic, and red means nervous or in love.
