In Computer Sciences, the development of interactive environments have motivated the study of emotions, especially on the context of mobile devices. Research in human-robot interaction have explored emotions to create natural experiences of interaction with social robots. However, there is still a sort of unexplored practical approaches concerning changes on the personality of an artificial system caused by modifications on the user's inferred emotional state. This research proposes to develop, for Android platform, an environment for human-computer interaction based on emotions. A dedicated module will be responsible for recognizing emotions by analyzing facial expressions. An app will aggregate the whole system, which will use information acquired from the emotion recognizer to interact properly and to recommend content. The expectation is that future research concerning human-robot interaction may consider the proposed architecture. (AU)
