How strange would it be if you walked into a room stressed out and everybody knew it? Well, that may not be too odd in the near future.

Researchers at MIT have created a device that uses wireless signals to detect an emotional state. Using wireless signals that can detect things like heart rate and breathing. The device then can figure (at least with an 87 percent success rate in trials, so far) if you’re happy, sad or anything in between.

Yes, it does sound intrusive. But the researchers say it can be put to good use. For example, it could allow movie marketers have more accurately gauge audience reaction.
