Children who suffer from autism often avoid eye contact with their peers, family and friends. Samsung in collaboration with physicians and scientists has developed an application teaching children to make eye contact and understand facial expressions and emotions of other people.
With the help of a smartphone's camera other people may be involved in the process of social adaptation of a child. For example, a child can take a picture of his mother, and the app will help him to interpret the emotions on her face. The application also helps children to express their feelings more freely.
Earlier we have reported about another useful device. Volvo, Ericsson and sports equipment manufacturer POC have created a "smart" helmet for cyclists. According to the companies" representatives, it will help to avoid collisions with cars on the roads.
The helmet is equipped with special sensors warning the driver about nearby vehicles. Also, the device has access to the Internet and Volvo Cars' City Safety System. The system can calculate the trajectory of both vehicles and warn the drivers in the event of a potential accident.
