Smile is a great way to express pleasure or joy at something or someone. But more often than not, it has to be forced and is fake. While that may work for a lot of people perfectly well, things are about to change. A new technology from MIT can now detect if your smile is true or fake, thus busting you right on spot for pulling that false grin.


The technology can have widespread applications. The interesting part is that the technology is not too hard to use. This essentially means that individuals or organizations can make use of it to see if people’s smiles are for real or are fake.

The applications for such a technology are numerous. For instance, a stand-up comedian can find out if his audience really is amused or are merely smiling for no reason at all. Similarly, courts can see if the witnesses really mean when they smile or not, thus providing proof as to whether or not the witness is trying to tell the truth.

However, the technology will also give rise to many moral problems. Should a technology that can detect the truth of emotions really should be made commercially available? That, in many ways, will inhibit the beauty of human life which depends on not really knowing the truth to such a great extent. Moreover, if the technology can detect fake smiles today, it may be able to judge the truth of other emotions too in the coming days. And that definitely sounds a bit scary.

The good thing is that MIT has plans of applying the technology to a very good use – to help autistic children interact with other kids more effectively.
