Re: Distasteful
This does sound like something that would have to be run in a model similar to paid surveys or focus groups, where people get a modest amount of cash, or maybe a contest entry or merchandise, to give feedback or allow their reactions to be measured. Google could likely charge advertisers a premium over what it pays participants.

Still, it's just creepy. We have a Kinect, and sometimes I swear the thing is staring at me.

Count me out as well. I don't see any direct benefit to me...unless I'm going to be paid for opting in or penalized for opting out.

Re: Distasteful
extrapolate - if the softare can detect your mood it should also be able to detect other emotions which could tailor games to maximise impact... you could really mess with peoples warm and fuzzies that way.

The clinical nature of "user engagement," is horrible. It sounds so robotic and inhumane. 

I can also tell you now, any product that tries to track me via camera isn't going in my home. That includes any Google products and Microsoft's Kinect camera. Not a chance.
