Smile Bot


Another project exploring the importance of smiling and happiness, the Smile Bot was created as a smile catcher and to encourage people to smile more in the depressed world we live in currently. Designed to be approachable and to elicit a smile, the bot uses sound effects and an interactive smile screen and smile counter. Using facial recognition technology and a smile detection algorithm the bot reacts to peoples smile and changes its own face from a sad blue to a happier colour when capturing real smiles.

When it is at its happiest and when 4 people are smiling simultaneously the 'Ultra-smile Mode' is reached and a rainbow emerges inside the bots belly.
