Digital collaboration of individuals has increased in diverse areas such as gaming, learning and product innovation. Across scenarios, adequate intra- and interpersonal emotion management is increasingly acknowledged to be beneficial to cognitive and affective interaction outcomes. Unfortunately, individuals differ notably in their emotion management abilities. Additionally, many types of computer mediated collaboration lack the richness of affective cues traditionally found in face-to-face interaction. We envision psychophysiology-based emotion feedback as an automated tool to improve emotion management, and therefore group performance and satisfaction. The presented prototype presents a first iteration of this idea, centered around information on emotional arousal derived from peripheral nervous system measures.
