Google Glass enables those with autism to see emotions

Stanford University researchers are testing software

Researchers in Stanford University are using Google Glass to help children with autism. The Autism Glass Programme uses software, which can read a person's facial expressions and emotions. The device then tells the user what those emotions are. 

Speaking about the project Dennis Wall, Director of Wall Lab, said

"The programme is meant to teach children with autism what the face is telling them. We believe that when that happens they will become more socially engaged." 

The team are still in the early stages of researching the software programme, it is already showing positive results. It's hoped that this software will be commercially available in a few years time.
