Earphone tracks facial expressions, even with a face mask — ScienceDaily

Cornell University researchers have invented an earphone that can continuously track full facial expressions by observing the contour of the cheeks — and can then translate expressions into emojis or silent speech commands.

With the ear-mounted device, called C-Face, users could express emotions to online collaborators without holding cameras in front of their faces — an especially useful communication tool as much of the world engages in remote work or learning.

With C-Face, avatars in virtual reality environments could express how their users are actually feeling, and instructors could get valuable information about student engagement during online lessons. It could also be used to direct a computer system, such as a music player, using only facial cues.

“This device is simpler, less obtrusive and more capable than any existing ear-mounted wearable technologies for tracking facial expressions,” said Cheng Zhang, assistant professor of information science and senior author of “C-Face: Continuously

‘Wear the damn mask and follow the science’: Chris Wallace doesn’t mince words during Fox appearance

Three days after the first presidential debate, Donald Trump has tested positive for COVID-19, while Joe Biden tested negative on Friday. But what of the third man on the stage Tuesday night, debate moderator and Fox News anchor Chris Wallace?

Now he’s getting tested, too.

“You can bet — I’ve already been asked by a lot of people — I’m going to have to get a test,” Wallace said Friday on “Fox & Friends.”

Wallace, 72, said he never got closer than 10 or 12 feet to the president, who did not approach him after the contentious debate ended. Biden did go over to the moderator briefly, “basically to say, ‘I bet you didn’t know you had signed up for this,’” Wallace told the morning show hosts.

He went on to note that everyone allowed into the hall at Case Western Reserve University had to take a COVID test ―

EBay sent cockroaches to a blogger’s home last year.

Shocking headlines poured out of newsrooms in June when six former eBay employees and contractors were arrested (and a seventh was arrested in July) for sending a bloody pig mask and cockroaches to a Boston-area couple that operated the tiny publication EcommerceBytes. The US Attorney for Massachusetts provided many lurid details of the scheme, including how eBay staff sent the couple threatening messages, fly larvae, live spiders, and posted the couple’s address to Craigslist to invite swingers to knock on their door “any time of day or night.”

But the New York Times Sunday published a far
