    This paper contains the user study on human emotion displayed on wearable technology. The study tried to investigate the context and the means of a person who would like to express his/her emotions explicitly through wearable devices with the use of real-time generation of colors and patterns on them. Our study shows a very few people wanted their emotions to be exposed without knowing and most of them wanted their emotions to be expressed sometimes depending on specific context. We revealed the gap between the designer’s belief and what the user’s desire. Most of the participants did not appreciate the technology for displaying emotion in public and in some cases it seemed people’s awareness and imaginations are limited to this new phenomenon.
