Just when you think modern technology couldn’t possibly get any more invasive, one of the tech giants takes it to the next level.

The concept of machines that can understand and interpret human emotions has long been the stuff of science fiction books and movies. Now, according to insider information obtained by Bloomberg, Inc is working on developing a gadget that can figure out what your emotional state is or whether you might be ill, and then make “appropriate” suggestions – like getting you to buy medicine from the website which will, of course, be delivered to your home in minutes via Amazon drones.

The gadget, which is being described as a “health and wellness product,” will be worn on the wrist and will use voice recognition software to recognize and interpret human emotions.

Why some experts are concerned

The product is still in the development stage and may never come to market, but a patent was filed in 2017 for a system that uses voice software to determine whether a person is feeling “joy, anger, sorrow, sadness, fear, disgust, boredom, stress, or other emotional states.”

Experts are already expressing concerns about massive potential privacy issues with this type of technology, especially since hackers have been able to turn other voice recognition devices like the “Echo” into live microphones, allowing unscrupulous individuals to access sensitive information.

Imagine what a stalker could do with this type of device strategically hidden in a victim’s home and hacked to become a microphone.

Plus, Amazon itself doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to privacy issues.

Bloomberg reported:

The concept is likely to add fuel to the debate about the amount and type of personal data scooped up by technology giants, which already collect reams of information about their customers. Earlier this year, Bloomberg reported that Amazon has a team listening to and annotating audio clips captured by the company’s Echo line of voice-activated speakers.
