Latest Invention: Happiness Machines to Analyze the Happiness Level of Chinese People


If you visit China you might as well observe the happiness machine that tells people whether they are happy or not and in case a person is happy the machine shows the exact level of their happiness.

It would be interesting to note that the estimation of the level of happiness is part of a campaign meant to show how happy Chinese people are. The developers of the campaign also look forward to analyzing the reasons of happiness or unhappiness of people.

Specialists will start analyzing the collected data starting August 2nd, when the campaign will come to an end.

It is worth mentioning that the campaign is performed via two different mediums - a happiness machine and a micro blog site called Sina Weibo, which is similar to the famous Twitter. The former has been installed on several bus stations around Beijing, Kunming, Xi'an and Zhengzhou.

All that one has to do to estimate their happiness level is to push a button on the machine and then read the answer on an LCD screen mounted over a billboard.

The micro blogging site allows people to log in and express their emotions online, reports China Daily.
