Scientists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology announced that they had managed to develop a device to measure how boring a conversation is. Tiny video probes are installed into the glasses of a person who takes part in a conversation, afterwards they are capable of catching the degree of concentration, confidence and interest. During the conversation this information is passed to the notebook by IR port and processed by a special program. A chain of experiments has proved that such detector can determine the emotional state of people talking to each other accurate to 86%.
