People who find it hard to run the whole gamut will certainly welcome the introduction of so-called bite-sized gamuts this year.
An American company has developed the partial gamut, allowing concepts such as motions to be run in smaller amounts.
Spokesperson Mary J Heidelberg told TheSpoof.com "We developed the partial gamut in response to numerous requests from people who wanted the whole gamut but found it took out too much time from their modern lifestyle. For example, most singers, politicians and actors require a whole gamut of emotions every day and nowadays that's just not feasible".
The company said the first bite-sized emotion gamuts would be available by the end of January after being trialled by EastEnders actor Steve McFadden. He told Deaconlinews "It's really fantastic, I'm so sad".
