British HCI Group Annual Conference
3 - 7 September 2007
The emotion sampling device (ESD) has been developed in the light of ever-increasing interest in the area of affective computing, and out of a need to better understand the effect that electronic products have on the emotions of their users. A study of emotion theory and current sampling techniques revealed a need for a method of a different nature, one that does not rely upon the traditional forms of emotion representation. Therefore, the ESD aims to satisfy this need, being a tool that can not only accurately sample the multi-faceted human emotional experience, but also blend seamlessly into our world in the true spirit of ubiqitous computing.
