Abstract

NEYEM, Andrés; ARACENA, Cristian; COLLAZOS, César A  and  ALARCON, Rosa. DESIGNING EMOTIONAL AWARENESS DEVICES: WHAT ONE SEES IS WHAT ONE FEELS. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2007, vol.15, n.3, pp.227-235. ISSN 0718-3305.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-33052007000300003.

Interpersonal communication involves more than just words; it involves emotion. Emotions can be roughly seen as complex organized internal states. Awareness of those states would allow human beings to evaluate social information and develop strategic social intelligence and hence, everyday actions convey social meaning and emotion. This paper reports an experience for supporting public-emotion based dialogs, where emotions are expressed, captured and transmitted between distant participants using tangible interfaces. We also exploit the social meaning of an everyday physical object such as a portrait, in order to create affective interfaces. We describe as well, a device that allows Emotional Awareness and supports the affective interpersonal interaction among people across distance.

Keywords : Emotional awareness; pervasive computing; tangible user interfaces; affective interfaces.
