I've seen many attempts at generative music synthesisers that watch facial heat patterns to tell your mood. And some researchers have been working on integrating brain wave readings with similar systems. There has been several CD collections released by them, although I can't remember the names. No doubt some of these technologies could be used to determine what your likes and dislikes are so that a more personal model of you can be built.

What I'd really like is a walkman that detects when I'm running plays 70's cop show chase music so I can be just like Shaft :-)
