Users can use emojis to express their emotions and thoughts, such as the “reaction” feature on Facebook. But such emoji-dependent picture icons rarely represent the users’ feelings accurately and precisely. Further, even the users themselves cannot put their feelings into words promptly all the time. After identifying this limitation of general online chatting, we decided to develop a chatting app that can deeply analyze the users’ emotion when they are messaging their friends.
What it does
Our project includes a live camera to gather data regarding the user’s facial expression, a chat box for users to exchange messages, and an emo-analyzing chart that updates its analysis result of the users’ emotion every time when a new message is sent. During the conversation, the users can view both their own and their counterpart’s emotion analysis result.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we are proud of
In addition to how we completed building a SUPER COOL app in 36 hours, we are proud of coming up with a solution to help people communicate more clearly. HACK-AA-EMO allows users to learn about their friends' emotional state and changes promptly, which complements the limitations of words and existing emojis.
What we learned
What's next for HACK -AA- EMO!
The current focus of HACK-AA-EMO is to improve people’s online communication. In the future, we want to be able to analyze users’ life quality.
