Résumé

Humans nowadays are tending to spend too much time in front of their screens. Direct interaction between humans is falling in numbers and people are losing their empathic behaviour. By integrating empathy and emotions in everyday objects researchers can address this problem. In addition we can have a positive effect on our lives, from physical and mental health through tackling many issues, like productivity, time wasting, stress and other problems. In this article, we tackle the productivity problem by presenting the Empathic Flower Companion (EFC) that will be using the expression of emotions to help the human through their working day. It will be monitoring their time and at the same time analysing the websites they will be surfing. The concept proposed will reduce the time wasted on unproductive websites. The results show an increase of 15% in the productivity of the testers, which shows that EFC was effective in reducing the amount of time wasted.
