Language Learning Tool 05/08/12
This application is an experimental language learning tool created with OpenFrameworks. It uses the ofxSpeech to recognize a limited amount of vocabulary. Using the WordReference API there words can be translated into different languages: Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Turkish, Romanian. This application uses another application for face tracking allowing the user to feel more connected to the flash-cards. When images appear on the screen based on the speech input the pixels of each image are drawn individually. The images also mapped to the location of the user's face respond to the movement and opening and closing of the mouth. The bigger the mouth is open, the closer the brightest pixels get to the front of the screen. It also seems to have its own comical relief. :D
