“Make sure your face is well lit, without a light source behind you, for the best results,” reads the instructions on Smile Suggest, the web app everyone’s talking about. “Even with the best face tracking, Smile Suggest still struggles with beards. Beardist.” Smile Suggest is the latest project from Martin McAllister who we featured on the site last year for his project with Oli Kellett that rounded up all the locations in the UK with paradise in the title.
Martin’s latest project is a clever web app that lurks silently in your browser and tracks your facial movements. Whenever you crack a smile, a titter or a giggle the app saves the website into a handy and easily-shareable folder of happiness and joy. Very clever indeed, and well done to Martin for whacking out another fantastic, off-the-cuff internet project. Can the next one be something that teaches trolls a lesson please?
