Google Glass helping autistic children understand emotions

California: Remember Google Glass; the failed AR hardware by Google which never materialized into a commercial product? Researchers are now putting it to some good cause.

Researchers have used the AR glasses to develop a therapy routine for children with autism who find it difficult to understand the emotions of others, Engadget reported.

Google Glass’s facial recognition system notifies the wearer about the emotions people are expressing. The pilot trial resulted in positive development in autistic children who made better eye contact after the therapy. (ANI)
