Week 1 to Week 5

From Week 1(17 Oct) to Week 5(18 Nov), the project is in technical stage, figuring out how to use and combine Synesketch by Uroš Krčadinac (http://krcadinac.com/synesketch/) and Kinetic Typographic Engine(KTE) by Johnny Chung Lee(http://johnnylee.net/kt/) into 1 in Eclipse (Java), under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation.

It took so long because I’m not very strong on the Java development side.

How it works:

  1. Type in a message
  2. Emotion detector from Synesketch will detect the emotion from words
  3. Return the emotional response output with the color palette associated with that emotion (read more about Synesketch color here)
  4. I pair each emotional output with a code-generated typographic animation from KTE

The next stage is finding the concept framework on how to elicit emotional response from users interacting with the interface using kinetic typography.
