Emotional Rollercoaster was inspired by puns, stress and a desire to take advantage of Microsoft Cognitive Services.
What it does
Emotional Rollercoaster follows a similar concept to Guitar Hero or Dance Dance Revolution but with a twist: Match your emotions with the given picture emotion to move your car forward. The better your match, the further you go!
How we built it
On the software side, Emotional Rollercoaster was developed in C# by modifying the sample demonstration of near-real-time analysis on frames taken from a live video stream found here link
On the hardware side, we reverse-engineered a toy car and created a prototype rollercoaster from it.
What's next for Emotional Rollercoaster
Imagine a dynamic theme park, where rides go faster if they detect that you are not scared enough, or a car that detects the emotion of drivers and passengers for a customized commuting experience. The versatility of Microsoft API makes all of this possible.
