Does this technology remind anyone else of Star Trek?

This system simply collects data, its the analysis that ties into emotional cues such as anxiety, fear, 'I wanna peanut butter and jelly sandwich', etc.

The technology seems like a few steps up from monitoring a heartbeat, body temperature, etc. which I think is already under development by the military which has great, practical use in a combat theater.

It's unfortunate that the focus on this article only deals with the military. Mental health professionals could use this to coach patients to improve their self-awareness stressful situations. Understanding the problem is the first step.

I picture a dialog like this:
'How did my body react when I saw my dad?'
'Your response indicates anxiety...'

backups: always in season, never out of style.
