Emotion Reflector / Interactive Table Mirror

Emotion Reflector
Emotion Reflector

We introduce Emotion Reflector, an interactive table mirror, that supports users to recognize what they feel in a precise manner. Six basic emotions are provided as an output with proper visual interaction and auditory feedback based on facial-expression recognition. Emotion Reflector helps users learn the influences of emotion and practice Emotional Self-awareness so that it can prevent users from being buried in their own emotions and grow an objective view of their mental state. Additionally, self-tracking and journaling one's own emotions engage users to practice regularly by giving fun of unique sound composition archiving.
