The watch that tells boring people when it's time to shut up

•, Mark Bridge

Scientists have created a gadget that is worn like a wristwatch and uses artificial intelligence to assess a conversation's tone. It can differentiate between happy, sad and neutral, but some versions could also tell whether your delivery is boring or awkward.

It could be installed in smartphones or watches that would vibrate if the conversation went downhill during a date or interview, researchers said.
