Technology is driven by the objective of improving our lives, attending our needs and supporting our work and daily activities. Such guidelines are important to lead technological developments in many areas, whereas the most important result of such enabler is the enhancement of the users’ wellbeing. It is questionable how such technologies make us feel better. One can argue whether environmental conditions can be modified in order to enhance people’s wellbeing, and in what direction. One of the adopted methods in this work explores that thought, on whether the usage of a person’s physiological state can wield adequate sensorial stimulation to be usefully used thereafter. Another question considered in this work is whether it is possible to use such collected data to build a user’s musical playlists that tries to match a user’s physiological and psychological state with the stimuli evoked by the music that he or she is listening.
