Playlist keeps in tune with your moods

Mind-reading program that recommends music among others on show at Techfest

From a mind-reading program that recommends music, to an app that tells you where to find a taxi, 26 technologies were on show at Fusionopolis, as part of Techfest 2012, last week.

The two-day exhibition is the Institute for Infocomm Research's flagship annual event.

The institute, which is part of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research, develops technologies which companies can license and develop further for their own purposes.

One project that may soon gain a life outside the lab is a program that reads your emotional state and picks appropriate music.
