And it registered BPM, tempo and bass/treble to estimate what ‘mood’ a song had.
And then plotted a graph between speed and ‘mood’ and you went to an area.
I’m sure it would never have worked for me.
I’m fairly sombre at the moment, and I’ve been listening to Arctic Monkeys and Bloc Party. But I could equally turn to some Dubstep or drum & bass just because I enjoy that they’re sound, or I could equally choose Fall Out Boy who are the band that SenseMe would select.
And my happy pre-night out playlist has all the above genres/bands in too.
I think it would be an interesting cross subject thing to try and create though. If I feel like an extra challenge in coming months or years, I might contact people who do psychology and try and replicate the system it works on. The mind and music are two things I find very interesting, so I can imagine it would be a great way to better learn a language. And since Sony seem to have given up on it, after a handful of phones and small selection of PMPs with it, I’ll feel like I’m carrying on the flag for them.
And while we’re on it, expect some techy posts next week. Mobiles are the third ‘M’ I love so I’ll be all over mobile world congress next week. Hopefully this year will be a bigger game changer than the last.
