We were inspired!
What it does
This application will take a picture of the user, determine their emotional state from their facial expression, and match this emotional state to an emoji.
How I built it
Mirror-moji was built as a web app, running completely on the client side. We used Vue.js to build the UI, and integrated a facial recognition library from npm.
Challenges I ran into
Two of the main challenges we faced were to successfully get the facial data from the API, and then to subsequently match that data to a well-suited emoji.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
What's next for MirrorMoji
We would like to see this technology being integrated in a mobile OS, as part of the emoji input options.
