CNet has posted a story on an MIT project that has designed a device to read minds.  While it may not give away exactly what someone is thinking, it will tell their mood with surprising accuracy.  Read about it so that you can recognize if someone is using it the next time you sit down to play poker.

"The device, called the Emotional Social Intelligence Prosthetic, or ESP, was presented by Rana

El Kaliouby on Tuesday at the 2006 Body Sensor Network Conference at the MIT Media Lab. The

research team hopes the device will help people with autism learn to better read the social cues

of others.

"Mind-reading" is a psychology term for the subconscious notice and analysis of nonverbal cues,

such as facial expressions and head movements, which humans regularly use to determine the

emotional states of others.""
