Researchers at the University of Tokyo are developing a phone that monitors a caller’s biometrics (to include sweat levels and electrical resistance in the skin as well as levels of emotion in speech patterns), and transmits that data along with the phone signal during conversations. The compatible phone on the other end picks up this data, and translates it into physical manifestations accordingly – one current design calls for the phone to heat up when the caller is upset.
