A method of identifying and suggesting objects for a user within a user's field of vision of a personal imaging system. A user's field of vision within the system is monitored. The personal imaging system captures biometric data of the user regarding objects that are focused on within the user's field of vision. The biometric data and any identified emotions regarding the objects being focused on from the user is associated with the user's profile which includes at least demographics. A real-time correlation of the user's profile and demographics with other users is performed to provide a correlation interest score. The interest score may be used to recommend and direct the user's attention to other objects within the user's field of vision that the user may be interested in.
