Cool Or Creepy…New TV’s Watch You, Watching TV
Stacy and I love how technology is taking over the world!! Then there is this..A Japanese company NHK is testing out little cameras embedded in TV’s that watch you watching them, analyzing your movements and facial expressions to figure out what programs and advertisements you like and what you don’t.
The prototype TV’s use cameras to take pictures of you while you’re watching stuff. Those pics are sent to a tablet PC, which analyzes them to estimate your levels of interest and concentration and whether you’re happy, sad, angry, or bored. It’s called UTAN (User Technology Assisted Navigation)
So what do you think Tri-Cities….Is it cool or creepy?
