As the world goes digital, we yearn for more tactile experiences. And, in our Good Life Science news, if you want to be a human emotion detector, don’t look…listen.
Good Life Riff: As the world has gone digital, we feel pain. Sure, there are benefits to an electronic existence, but the truth is, we are wired to experience life in a more tactile, touch-driven way. Pinching, sliding and tapping screens doesn’t cut it. We need to touch, create, make and build with our hands, bodies and tools, working with materials in three-dimension. Right now, that need is going largely unfilled. But, there’s a counter-movement afoot to take that back. We call it The Touch Economy. That’s what we’re exploring in today’s GLP Riff.
Good Life Science: And, in our Good Life Science segment, we’re diving into some fascinating new research on how we pick up on the emotions of those around us. For years, the emphasis on been on seeing faces, decoding expressions and micro-expressions. Turns out, new research shows our ears may be a much better tool for understanding what’s really going on inside the heads of those around us. That’s what we’re talking about in today’s GLP Science Update. And, as always, for those want to go to the source, here’s a link to the full study.
