Giant Emoji
Aug 2016
Google Creative Lab

A small open-source openFrameworks app for Android developed for the Android Experiments booth at Google I/O 2016. The installation consisted of a Pixel C tablet running the openFrameworks app doing face landmark tracking using ofxFacetracker2 that I developed for this installation. We then trained a simple SVM model to classify the face landmarks into different types of emojis, and that data was transmitted to a web app whick rendered live a giant emoji copying a facial expression.

The project was developed in collaboration with Stewart Smith who did the rendering of the emojis.
