Three experiments revolving around laughing and smiling, as the world quarantines
Here are three experiments with emotion detection. During quarantine, I found myself spending more and more time in front of my computer.
Hence I wondered, in this weird, lonely times, how many times have I shared a laugh with my computer?
Smiley Chrome Extension
A chrome extension that track the number smiles
Using face-api, I made a chrome extension that track the number of times I smiled. This was an interesting reminder that in these strange and trying times, positive emotions can still prevail.
Make Me Laugh
A game implementing "Try not to laugh".
Made with Open Frameworks, this interaction detects your smile and takes a screenshot of it.
I thought it would be fun to play "try not to laugh" and see what it would take for me to crack.
Thanks for the laughs
A library of screenshots showing what made me laugh
I wanted to know what made me laugh throughout the quarantine.
This app takes a screenshot of my screen and my face, every time I smile. It was great to see the source of my laughter.
Below is a snippet of things that made me laugh.
