Claims

1. An apparatus configured to control lighting pattern visually perceivable from an electronic device carrying at least one light emitting element, the apparatus comprising:

a sensor configured to capture input signals based on a user, the input signals being indicative of real-time user state when using the electronic device;

a processor receiving and processing the input signals in a manner so as to generate control signals,

wherein the control signals are communicable from the processor for controlling lighting pattern displayed by the at least one light emitting element.

2. The apparatus as in claim 1 wherein the sensor is an image capturing device and the input signals correspond to images of facial expression of the user.

3. The apparatus as in claim 2

wherein the processor is configured to perform facial expression analysis based processing so as to determine emotional condition of the user, and

wherein real-time user state relates to user emotional condition when using the electronic device.

4. The apparatus as in claim 1 wherein the input signals are based on pulse detection usable to derive vital signs of the user.

5. The apparatus as in claim 4

wherein the vital signals are indicative of at least one of physical and emotional condition of the user, and

wherein real-time user state being based on at least one of physical and emotional condition of the user.

6. The apparatus as in claim 1, wherein the control signals are further communicable from the processor for selecting music genre of audio output.

7. A method for controlling lighting pattern visually perceivable from an electronic device carrying at least one light emitting element, the method comprising:

obtaining user based input signals which are indicative of user state when using the electronic device;

processing the input signals in a manner so as to generate control signals; and

communicating the control signals for controlling lighting pattern displayed by the at least one light emitting element.

8. A system comprising:

a plurality of computers, each of the plurality of computers being coupled to an electronic device and each electronic device carrying at least one light emitting element; and an apparatus carried by one or both of each of the plurality of computers and each electronic device, each apparatus comprising:

a sensor configured to capture input signals based on a user, the input signals being indicative of real-time user state when using the computer; and

a processor receiving and processing the input signals in a manner so as to generate control signals,

wherein the control signals are communicable from the processor for one or both of controlling lighting pattern displayed by the at least one light emitting element and providing an indication of real-time user state of a user of one computer of the plurality of computers to another user of another computer of the plurality of computers.
