Spring Summer Fall Winter color spectrums. Adjusts color when mood changes (temp, skin oxygenation, etc)

Used as fashion, or as a warning signal to clueless loved ones. Same function in a business environment. Know when NOT to ask for a raise or be late on a project.

US patent 20080190138: Mood patch https://www.google....tents/US20080190138
