Facial Mockup is a tool created exclusively for Microsoft Kinect users. The application recognizes user's head and face movements (it captures all changes of the facial expression, as well as identifies assymetries). The results are then processed in real time and applied onto a 3D model visible on the screen.
The biggest challenge was the simultaneous use of both existing and new pieces of code (the whole project was based on an existing software). They had to be merged in a way that’d make the use of the app intuitive while keeping the accuracy of real-time facial recognition as high as possible.
- Create an easy-to-use tool capable of capturing and analyzing facial expression.
- Personalize user-experience – implement the option to use custom 3D models
