An article on “The New Zealand Herald” Website, states that a New Zealand technology company, FeelGudApps, has developed a new biometrics application for the iPhone. The developers claim that the app, named ‘Feelie’, can broadcast how you're feeling to registered recipients. The item goes on to describe how Feelie works.
Feelie monitors a person’s behavior (e.g., terseness of texts and emails, amount of movement, etc.) for two to three days. A base profile is then constructed based on data from psychological studies. From then on, the person's emotional state is dynamically updated and broadcast to their registered recipients. A color-coded tinge over the person’s profile picture identifies how they're feeling as follows:
• Yellow – happy
• Blue - calm
• Green – nervous
• Purple - lying
• Red – angry
I was hoping to put Feelie through its paces -- to see if there was a voice biometrics angle to be exploited. Unfortunately, I could not find any reference to the app in the iTunes store. Too good to be true?
