Our main goal was to use facial recognition to detect emotions and play music based on that.

What it does

There's two modes: facial expression detection, and object detection. The former detects the emotions you're feeling and describes them, and the latter detects an object on the photo and plays a song about it. The app also features text to speech to inform the user about the results of the analysis. There's also a "Don't press me" but that's our little, spooky secret ;););)

How we built it

We built it using python and the integration of google cloud's object and face detection.

Challenges we ran into

  • Spotify's python API being outdated. We searched for songs on YouTube instead.
  • Building an interface with tkinter.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • Had loads of fun!
  • Working out how to use google cloud
  • Figuring out a bit of tkinter

What we learned

  • API usage (Google Cloud Vision)
  • Tkinter

What's next for Scannerama

  • Integrating it with Spotify or other streaming service.
