Abstract

Current studies unveil the potential of using new technologies for emotion recognition. However, biofeedback sensors, which can be a fruitful source of data are not explored in relation to additional stimuli. The following demo explores the opportunity of how dynamic visualization stimuli and bio-feedback sensors might provide insight into mental states that the user is not aware of. The system design is the result of a project undertaken by the authors to employ the potential of this type of sensors in the context of therapies. Early results suggest a correlation between the visualization and the emotions of users, as well as users’ interest and engagement with the system. Further research can be beneficial for creating a greater therapy experience, as well as generating new user testing methods and developing game interactions that would make use of those variables.
