iMotion Facial Emotion Tracking Software

Title

Visualizing Emotional States during a game through dynamic avatars

What it does

To better visuallize emotional data, this program would translate raw facial data and place it on a unisex face rig, in order to remove bias and display the raw data.

Who is it for?

This is for any researchers and focus group testers that would like to track emotional data based on media intake. This would better represent the data to the user by interpreting the data by displaying the emotional state on a blank avatar.

Why?!?!

This will help users not be biased in the process as well as, based on empathetic research, create a sense of empathy between the user and the participant.

Why?!?!

The purpose is to see if choices in a narrative are affected by having a direct, consistent goal being presented to the user. A goal that continues to update and change as the game continues
