It is said that humanity is characterised by its high degree of empathy and socialisation. Digitalisation has changed human communication drastically, but the means of expressing emotions have not evolved from language and facial expressions. However, recent advances in neuroscience and AI are making it possible to sense emotions from brain waves, which can dramatically transform our emotional communication in the future.
In this project, we aimed to initiate conversations about the future of communication by illustrating a future world where people can 'see' each other's emotions as graphics displayed above their heads with the imaginary product named 'EmoAura'.
Project outcomes include:
- Future Scenarios of ‘emotional transparency’, consisting of short movies and descriptions
- Emotional Graphics Chart as a visualisation of diverse emotions
- AR Filter as UI for the future product 'EmoAura'
- Exhibition for initiating conversations about the future of communication
