Simple tool may help children with autism understand facial expressions

Many children with autism struggle to understand facial expressions – one of the most challenging aspects of the condition – but new software may be able to help them break this.

The Google glasses work by studying faces and sending information to a small screen located over one eye. For example, if a person is showing signs of being happy, the word ‘happy’ or an emoji will appear on the small screen.

Only 35 glasses were given to the university, and while Google ceased production of the device last year due to lack of interest, thanks to the research, it now has been given a new lease of life.
