The app's accuracy is not representative of our online data collection tests where we process videos to get a better facial tracking and more accurate emotion estimation. See how we measure facial expressions to report audience emotions. > Emotion Metrics 

Download & Install
Once you've chosen whether you're downloading for a Mac or PC, double-click the .dmg or .zip to open up the EmotionBooth.app. If you're a Mac user, drag the app icon in to your Applications folder and click to open or right click and select 'Open'.    

Power up!
If you’re using a laptop, make sure that it’s connected to its charger as even on high-spec machines, the power saving function can affect the performance.

Have a Play
When you're a normal distance from your screen, a wireframe of a face will appear. The wireframe demonstrates how your facial features are tracked. Click your spacebar to toggle between the wireframe and your face as is. Use the switch to add fun effects - exaggerating your facial features as you move.

Get Results
For best results, ensure your face is uniformly lit. Avoid using lamps with strong directional light. Shadows cast on the face can affect the performance. Backlights can create a silhouette effect - making the face difficult to read.
