Google Glass Could Be Used To Treat Autism, Thanks To Sension Project Run By Stanford Student
Imagine, if you will, not having the ability to read a person's emotions - not being able to see upturned lips and immediately register, smile. To your emotive self, that possibility seems bleak at best. But it's one of the principal challenges facing people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). And it's a challenge that one Stanford University student has decided to overcome with the help of Google's latest technology, Google Glass.

A lot of people have much to gain from Google Glass, as the possibilities of the retro-futuristic eyewear seem almost limitless. Catalin Voss, an 18-year-old from Heidelberg, Germany is testing those limits in a new project called Sension. Co-founded with Jonathan Yan during the pair's freshman year at Stanford, Sension will allow people with ASD to lock-in on a person's face and let Google Glass determine the person's emotion via the device's webcam.
