Abstract

This paper suggests a prototype system making users smile using electrical muscle stimulation (EMS). We present design considerations, our approach, and the current system setup. We continue to describe our first insights into using an unobtrusive EMS setup to stimulate smiles and show first findings from our entry in this year's UIST student innovation competition. We also outline our approach and follow-up experiments to potentially use this technology to improve user's mood.
