Emoticon App

Ubergizmo.com has reported on a new Emoticon app for cell phones.  “Twikao” is an app the digitizes a facial expression from a photo and turns it into an emoticon.

Developed by Takuto Onishi from Japan, this app can take any photo of a face (as long as it is fairly clear) and turn it into an emoticon.  It has over 100 facial variations.  See the image below courtesy Ubergizmo.com

 

On a similar note NewsOK has reported on what it means to have a “facial accent”.  They compare the face symbols used via a keyboard by Americans and Japanese and suggest that even in the electronic world of emotions different cultures have varying facial accents or regions of facial focus.
