Magic mirror table for social-emotion alleviation In the smart home
In this paper, we propose a prototype of smart furniture for the smart home—“a magic mirror table”. The
proposed system has a camera to capture the viewer’s facial expression. By analyzing the expressions, the system is able to
determine the emotion of the viewer. If the viewer is in a negative emotion, the system then speaks positive sentences and
plays the viewer’s favorite music to alleviate his/her emotion. The experimental results confirm that the system is able to
relieve the sad mood of the viewer. In addition, the proposed system can serve as a calendar for event reminding.
