This paper presents the Emotionally Intelligent Contents (EIC) framework designed to support the rapid development of interactive emotion contents.

This framework allows a designer to create the emotion content that interprets a user's emotional state and adapts its visual and aural characteristics based on user-specified emotion rules. It dynamically alters userspecified images or models to express user emotions. It also enables users to share their emotion with others using customized emotion expressions applied in the content. Several prototype EICs were built with this framework. A pilot study was conducted to compare the EIC against the original content and the initial result showed that the EIC had significantly more influence on the subject's emotion than the original content.
