Face-Pad
Face-Pad is a vision-based input device using facial expression to manipulate a PC. 
Face-Pad detects four facial expressions: Smile, Oh, and Wink (left or right); moreover, it recognizes shouts using microphone volume detection.
 
The facial expressions and shouts are mapped to five key codes: four arrow keys, and the enter key. Face-Pad has been designed to develop a more natural smiling face by iterating the contraction and release of the facial muscles for using Face-Pad. This exercise helps to create dynamic facial expressions including the smiling face. Moreover, A non-player also laughs together and enjoys the time because of watching player's funny faces using Face-Pad. That is, the player unwittingly makes a kind of secondary fun virus.
 
We believe that a smile makes us happier and healthier, even if it is a forced smile.
