Mood Ring

Caleb Ferguson

Mood Ring is a mirror that recognizes facial expressions and illuminates based on the viewers mood.


The project is a regular mirror with a ring of LED lights behind it and a camera nearby that uses the a browser-based facial tracker (clmtracker) to recognize a mood.

When the camera recognizes a face a mood 'threshold' is passed, the ring animates.

If driven from a mac mini, it will take up a minimal amount of space – ~14 inch circle on the wall. Works in any lighting.
