I was not quite sure how I can execute the compliment device, like what the input could be. I was thinking emotion, and I found few API about detecting emotion from face. Another solution I thought of is Instagram data from the user. Maybe user can enter three key words to describe themselves. Maybe the compliment can generate from user’s hand size and weight.
Collaborated with Yuanyuan Wang, we also thought of another idea. We wanted to build an installation that is beautiful and magical. The flower like creatures in the right picture is hanged from the ceiling, and they would move up and down. The little creature can also be like a butterfly as the other drawing in the picture. There will be maybe 30-40 of these little creatures. When user puts their hand underneath the installation, the creatures would fly up and down and lights up based on where the hand is.
