Here at Emteq we have recently completed a survey of respected research organisations for their thoughts on the use of VR technology in their work. The response was fantastic, with 87 responses from researchers in 12 different countries. The responses lead us to believe that the cost of current eye tracking and emotion measurement solutions is a barrier to widespread adoption, coupled with the fact that the current range of packaged solutions are complex and lack key features. At Emteq, we are creating a simple solution to sense human emotions from the face, with VR being the perfect use-case for our technology.

Emteq is developing technology that allows computers to read your facial expression and emotions. This technology - named Facial Remote Activity Monitoring Eyewear (FRAME) is part of an £800,000 project funded by the National Institute for Health Research Invention for Innovation Programme. FRAME is being developed by a consortium led by Nottingham Trent University in collaboration with Queen Victoria Hospital in West Sussex, Brighton-based technology company Emteq, Coventry University, and the Facial Palsy UK charity.
