Robot Whispers

Reminds me of the Cronenbergian phone we discussed in Vocalities but also the drive to bond with machines from the Turkle book.

Notice the slight assumption that emotional subtleties are already a form of language, signs or code that can be "imprinted onto senses" - like they are consistent, homogenous and quantifiable things that can exist outside of the user - objectified.

"Breath temperature, humidity, smell, and vocal qualities. It augments emotional subtleties and imprints them onto our senses."
