Create Emoticons Using Your Own Facial Expressions
Mobile app turns photos of you and your friends into characters you can text.
A new iPhone app, created by Takuto Onishi from Japan, can turn any portrait into an emoticon. Simply take a photo of yourself or a friend, and the Twikao app will automatically analyze the facial expression and create a special emoticon. It recognizes expressions such as happy, joy, excited, sad, angry, crying and just plain cute.
