Invention Exploration #2 — Emotigraphs


What happens when you mix a photograph with an emotion?

That’s the question that spurred the invention of the emotigraph. It’s high technology that’s become commonplace in the USE. It starts with a camera that gathers information from your body with the prick of a needle and some other special signal technology. Don’t ask me, I’m not the inventor.

I just sell the emotigraphs to whoever steps foot in my store.

Let me tell you, emotigraphs changed the world. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and purchase happiness. (Tweet this) Press a button and voila! You’re happy. For a shutterstock_145322698moment, at least. The emotions last only twenty seconds or so.

Doctors started using them as prescriptions for depression, anxiety, and the like. That, of course, opened more job opportunities. People get hired for their emotions — hired to create a desired emotion and then document it with an emotigraph that will then be sold. Wouldn’t you like to be paid to be happy? To be adventurous? To be brave, caring, or peaceful?

I know I would.

It makes sense. We all love drama. Emotions. We love to feel. It all started with the first camera — we got a taste of what it meant  to capture a moment. Now, with an emotigraph, you can capture a feeling. (Tweet this)

So tell me, what emotigraph do you want right now? Or perhaps you want a sentra. A sentra is the device that takes the emotigraph, kind of like a camera only cameras are so outdated. Maybe you’re the person who wants to have a sentra to document all those happy feelings — the emotion you had when you saw your newborn child for the first time, or that emotion you had on your wedding day, or the hope you felt when you started your first big job…I can help you there.

Just step into my store and take a look! Any questions?





If you could have an emotigraph of any emotion (or take your own emotigraph of a certain time in your life) what would it be?

About Nadine Brandes

Nadine Brandes is an adventurer, fusing authentic faith with bold imagination. She never received her Hogwarts letter, but rest assured she’s no Muggle (and would have been in Ravenclaw House, thank you very much.) This Harry Potter super-nerd has been known to eat an entire package of Oreos (family size) by herself, and watches Fiddler on the Roof at least once a year. She writes about brave living, finding purpose, and other worlds soaked in imagination. Her dystopian trilogy (The Out of Time Series) challenged her to pursue shalom, which is now her favorite word (followed closely by bumbershoot.) When Nadine’s not taste-testing a new chai or editing fantasy novels, she and her knight-in-shining armor (nickname: “hubby”) are out pursuing adventures.

  1. When I read about this in “A Time to Die” I thought they were SUPER amazing! I bragged about it to my husband in how cool it would be to actually have one! I think it would be really interesting to get someone’s emotion as they are jumping off a cliff or hiking Mount Everest!

    • Wow! I didn’t even think of that! There are SO many possibilities with emotigraphs. We’ll be seeing a lot more of them in book two. 😉 Glad you liked them, Laura! 😀

I love hearing from you!
