Abstract
One of the recent difficulties researchers face in the area of adaptive computer systems is to get data corresponding to real affective states. In this paper we present a new approach for the induction of affective states in humancomputer interaction. For causing different emotions and obtaining emotion-related data we developed a Tetrisgame (labelled "EmoTetris") and applying it in an experiment. The data collection of two participants while playing EmoTetris took place in a laboratory environment and lasted five weeks, while physiological measurements and subjective data were gathered. Results regarding self-assessments indicate that our induction was successful and recognition rates of emotions based on physiological data are up to 70 percent.
