The Department of Defense has never been scared of embracing technology in some rather unusual ways. We all remember when they ordered up 2200 Sony PS3's, right? This time around though, they may be looking at the Android app T2 Mood Tracker due to it's ability to check the emotional state of the user and offer up health related tips.
Recently featured on DoDVclips, T2 Mood Tracker allows users to self-monitor emotional experiences associated with common deployment-related behavioral health issues like post-traumatic stress, brain injury, life stress, depression and anxiety. All of which can be tracked and referenced for any set period of days, weeks and months visually. Nothing at this point indicates this will be something the DoD will be deploying across the board but it's still rather interesting that an Android app would garner such interest.
