How passionate does you lover feel about you? And how do you guys feel about people using the word “lover” to describe a significant other? Do you show up at a party and tell everyone that your lover’s going to be there soon? Do you show up at parties? I don’t any more (of course, I’d have to be invited to not show up).
Aaaand, I’ve already gone way off track.
My point about your lover is that if you happen to live in South Korea, you can pay for a new service called the “Love Detector” on KTF mobile — a service that leverages the awesome power of video conferencing with the even more-awesome power of the old Love Tester machines that used to be hidden in the dingiest corner of every boardwalk and video arcade in the country.
According to Reuters,
Users who speak by pointing their mobile phones at themselves for video conferences can see a “love meter” bar on the screen of their handset during a conversation.
They later receive an analysis of the conversation delivered through text message that breaks down the amount of affection, surprise, concentration and honesty of the other speaker.
And I’m sure that the technology works incredibly well because it costs a pretty penny at $1.59 a month. I don’t know about you, but I need that money to send and/or receive roughly ten a la carte text messages here in the US. Ho! Still got it.
