Doctor Feel Good

Dr. Whippy is a machine that offers soft scoop ice cream according to the perceived unhappiness level of the customer. By asking you a series of informal questions, the Doctor measures just how sad or stressed or you are by your tone of voice. Based on how unhappy you are, the machine prescribes (er, dispenses) the appropriate amount of your favorite soft serve. This voice/stress analysis system comes courtesy of developer Demitrios Karg but sadly, it's not available for purchase just yet, and there's no word on how much it will cost.
