A design lab has declared war against small talk. Sensoree has designed a wearable tech sweater that, as the Guardian puts it, “attempts to shed light on the inner feelings of the wearer, without the need for uncomfortable chat.”

What does that mean? There’s now a sweater that changes color at the turtleneck based on how its wearer is feeling at the moment, by using Galvanic Skin Response. It’s kind of like a mood ring for the neck.

Sensors hook from the wearer’s hand to collar to transmit levels of skin stimulation. Colors range from green (tranquil) to red (in love) to yellow (nirvana).
