Concept: BlackBerry Empathy Gathers Your Emotional Data

One look at the BlackBerry pictured above and you’ll know that it’s a concept design, though we really wished that phones looked this fancy. The device here is dubbed the BlackBerry Empathyand it’s used in conjunction with a biometrics ring that is worn by the user to collect “emotional data”, allowing the phone to chart an emotional health chart, monitoring the user’s emotional health throughout a period of time, allowing them to judge how a phone call/message affects the user emotionally. The device features a transparent OLED display that can turn opaque when used. The front of the device features a touchscreen display while the back features the iconic BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard. Would you purchase such a BlackBerry if RIM decided to turn it into a reality?
