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 :)
