Research In Motion looks to be interested in making future BlackBerry devices something right out of Sci-Fi. RIM has applied for a patent that will grant them the use of using emotion in messaging. How will this be possible? By using a combination of accelerometer, front-facing camera, and sensors to detect the amount of pressure a user is applying while typing out the message.

Imagine if while in BBM you’re sending an angry message to your boss and by capturing your emotion it knows to automatically capitalize and bold the text. Or, what if it can feel the love and knows to automatically add a ‘hug’ emoticon. Would you want this kind of predictive capturing?
