Emteq's technology to create facial expression sensing glasses

Smart specs that know when you are smiling are being developed by Emteq to help rehabilitate people with facial paralysis.

The technology – named Facial Remote Activity Monitoring Eyewear (FRAME) – may lend itself to other future applications such as providing feedback on a person's mood if, for instance, they have depression. It may also enable someone who is tetraplegic control a wheelchair.
