Researchers are now using Google Glasses to help kids identify emotions

Say hello to the new Google Glasses!

Recently, scientists and researchers at Stanford are creating the Autism Glass Project, to help autistic children recognize and understand emotions.

According to the fonder of the project, Catalin Voss, Google Glasses identify faces by “action units” and classify them as words. For example, the outward facing camera reads a facial expression of someone smiling, providing a screen prompt reading “happy”.


More than 1 million people in the United States are diagnosed with autism, a condition where a person has difficulty in communicating and interacting with others.
