The Mask of Emotion is a research project created at the Digital Media Design department at Hongik University in Korea. It’s designed to hide your true emotions which are easily given away by your facial expressions. So instead of people seeing your face, they see this half-dome mask which features LEDs that can light up in different patterns to form basic emoticons. By default the LED face has no expression, but different interactions, like shaking the wearer’s hand, will cause it to display a smile or other emotions. While the mask was apparently created to “generate conversation and response in public spaces” I think it was actually designed to give anyone who wears it the ultimate poker face. (Can you think of a better way to pay for university?)
