Researchers in Bangladesh could make all your Her fantasies come true. According to Betabeat, they’re working on a computer program that detects emotions by analyzing people’s word choices and typing patterns.

The program is still in development, but right now it's 87 percent accurate when detecting joy, 81 percent accurate when detecting anger, and 77 percent accurate at detecting guilt, among other emotions. While the program is far from being a perfect mind-reader, it could still be more accurate than your roommate and/or mother?
