Future works We propose a wearable device capable of translating bio-sensed data into cartoon-like graphics projected in the physical surrounding. Such ’expressive Laser Aura ’ (LA) may serve for biofeedback purposes; but more interestingly, as the display extends past the wearer’s personal space it could complement non-verbal social communication by giving others an instant cue about a person’s real inner state. In this preliminary work, we explore a proof-of principle scenario: the possibility of enhancing empathic behavior at the working place, where people have little or no time to explicitly communicate a need for help, or on the contrary a need for isolation. The subject is sitting at the office desk; the LA (presently non-wearable) is projected on a nearby wall or on the floor. It takes the shape of an halo that changes its behavior as a function of the subject stress level. This research extends previous works in our lab on th
