Application software



An iPhone application which allows users to play the Japanese game of Fuku-Warai (a game in which blindfolded people pin cut-out facial features onto a blank face) using real photos and the latest facial synthesis technology. The application automatically recognizes facial features such as eyes, mouths, noses and eyebrows, and allows them to be rotated, increased / decreased in size or moved around, enabling the user to freely design funny or beautiful faces. There is also a mode in which parts of the face jump about whenever the phone is shaken. Users can enjoy Fuku-Warai in a way never experienced before.
