Thermotropic/Augmented Facial Reactions
Wanted to branch off and explore something mentioned from Here. Thank you @MTS :D
Completely dreaming here, but it'd be cool to use something similar to this for bioluminescent communication in the future. Somewhere in the facial region. Sort of like an advanced "blushing".
Having some form of augmented facial reaction to express emotions, such as something that does indeed react to a blush, would be very neat. Blushing by itself is one of the most human expressions in the animal kingdom, if anything else does blush... I don't know about it off hand. I know there isn't much, if anything else does.
Bioluminescence via exposure to larger amounts of blood in capillaries, perhaps very subtle temperature changes below the skin? Something controlled passively that might produce just a SLIGHT extra effect to augment a blush reaction... Or maybe any other reaction that could be expressed via visual perception... If I recall seeing thermal scans, depression causes the entire body to become much colder... Maybe there could be a 'blush' reaction to depression?
Bouncing out ideas. I would love to see something like this. Ideas?
Blushing is so... Human. ^^
