Nokia Facehugger face sensor?

| October 10, 2012 | 31 Replies

I thought at first it was a ‘The Onion’ style spoof or some error in translation to “Facehugger”. But the aim of this R&D project is quite interesting.

The whole point is to add more sensors, this time, sensing the movement of your face, measuring facial expressions and so forth. Finnish is apparently a very difficult thing for online translators to cope with so there might be quite a lot lost in translation.

The article says it may be useful in sport and for those with disabilities. I’m not sure what the implementation may be, but it could span from either text based communication based on facial gestures or activation of certain features.

It mentions something further about attempting work on sunglasses. Indeed we’ve seen R&D concept videos of Nokia’s venture into what looks like project glass years before google ever came up with the their version.
