A FAT + openFrameworks speed project!

Auto Smiley – Computer vision smiley generator from Theo Watson on Vimeo.

Auto Smiley is a computer vision application that runs in the background while you work. The software analyzes your face while you are working and if it detects a smile it sends the the ascii smiley face letters “: )” as keyboard presses to the front most application. Auto Smiley has many uses from just straight up convenience to enforcing honesty in your online communication :)

UPDATE: Windows PC Version!! Courtesy of Joey!
Grab it here.

UPDATE: for non US/UK users try this version – should work on all keyboards! AutoSmiley.app.unikeyboard.zip

Download the mac app here ( for US / UK / NL keyboards ):

    Excellent app, very good idea !!

    // For AZERTY keyboard, here is my solution:

    – the full source can be found here: http://misc.crashdump.fr/c0de/autoSmiley/AutoSmiley-001-AZERTY-SRC.zip

    – the universal binary here: http://misc.crashdump.fr/c0de/autoSmiley/AutoSmiley-001-AZERTY.zip

    – The correct GCKeyCodes are:

    CGPostKeyboardEvent( (CGCharCode)0, (CGKeyCode)47, true ); // - : key down
    CGPostKeyboardEvent( (CGCharCode)0, (CGKeyCode)47, false ); // - : up down
    CGPostKeyboardEvent( (CGCharCode)0, (CGKeyCode)27, true ); // - ) key down
    CGPostKeyboardEvent( (CGCharCode)0, (CGKeyCode)27, false ); // - ) up down

  17. [...] Auto Smiley uses a computer webcam and openFrameworks software to analyze a user’s face to determine whether or not he or she actually smiles. Upon detecting a grin, the app will automatically insert a generic ‘:)’ into the text of the program in use. As you can see in the demo video after the jump, the app seems to be pretty accurate, and, according to creator Theo Watson, engenders substantially more honesty into everyday online conversation.
