Panasonic unveils P702iD mood-sensing phone

Panasonic Mood Phone

Panasonic recently unveiled its P702iD mood-sensing phone at the CEATEC 2006 expo in Japan. Key to its design is an LED on the outer shell that can change its brightness and color between any of ten settings. While largely for cosmetic purposes, the LED can be tied to a dynamic Feel*Talk mode. The phone can analyze the phone owner's voice in real-time and will automatically shift the color of the phone depending on the perceived mood: a cheerful tone will produce different results than a bored or saddened tone, Panasonic says. Media capture is an equally major component of the design, as it contains both a 1.3-megapixel outer camera and a VGA camera for video chat. A miniSD card slot stores music and photos, and support for Japan's FOMA mobile broadband is built-in. NTT DoCoMo carries the phone today with open pricing. A photo of the phone's interior is available after the jump.
