Filters have become a new tool to quickly add a new perspective to photos. Giving users access to a filttr on twitter would add a new dimension to the utility of this social media platform.
What it does
Using both facial recognition technology and advanced, cutting edge emojis, we are able to track faces and emotions to overlay emojis onto faces in pictures.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
With our lack of experience in Node.js and scripting languages as a whole, we ran into a great amount of issues in formatting our code. This led to issues in creating our image modifying script. Along with this the modules we selected for our image editing prooved to be difficult to manipulate to our purpose. Other issues we faced included having to switch face recognition APIs eight hours in because Microsoft did not give us keys to use their face recognition and emotion APIs. The Twitter API was fairly easy to implement but gave struggle integrating with our lack of knowledge in Node.js
