The software then signals the wearer through a vibratory movement, signaling that the listener is not involved.

This new device is superior to the conventional ones as such complex emotional are most likely to come up in a conversation. Furthermore, such emotions are difficult to detect as they are communicated in a sequence of movements rather than a solitary expression.
