If you’re one of those people who feels uncomfortable expressing your feelings to other, then help is on the way – and is very technological about it. Design lab Sensoree has created the GER mood sweater, or wearable tech that will change colors according to the mood you happen to be in.

The crux of the technology is in the funnel-shaped collar of the top, where Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) is built in. GSR works by connecting the wearer’s hands to the collar through sensors, creating the so-called “Galvanic Extimacy Responder”. Moods are displayed through to use of LED light, which makes use of the aforementioned color changes. Green represents “Tranquil – zen” for example, and red “Nervous – in love”.

The sweater has already been revealed in specialist shows and exhibitions globally, and one hundred pieces are set to go to market in March. You may be wearing your heart on your sleeve sooner than you think.
