Face-based captcha

We’re about halfway through Summer Jam hackathon at work and I’ve had the pleasure of testing dozens of super awesome hackathon projects.

So far, my favorite is from Reinvent the Selfie. Hailing from Olin College, Austin Greene created a new emotion-based captcha called Emotcha.

Emotcha uses your webcam and Indico’s facial recognition API to analyze your expression and determine your mood. Unless your face matches the emotion expressed in a random sample image, you can’t log in. Genius!!

Watch the demo video below and try it yourself to see if you can unlock the captcha.

If you like Emotcha, help me convince Austin to keep working on it by liking and commenting on ChallengePost.
