As students, googling things is a common practice, and in this virtual school environment, students are more often in front of a screen than not. However, looking at webpage after webpage can get tiring and boring. We wanted to make something that would entertain students as they embarked on their many webpage browsing ventures and thus Chromacat was born.
What it does
Chromacat is a chrome extension that walks cats across the user's screen. Furthermore, based on one's facial expression, more or less cats would appear across the screen. We have four basic modes (neutral, questioning, happy, and sad) that add or subtract different amounts of cats.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This was the first time either of us ever made a Chrome extension!
What we learned
What's next for Chromacat
In the future, we hope to better train the model and recognize more facial expressions. We also hope to customize the cat colors, add other animals, and have said animals walk across the screen at different angles.
