Grimace: Display Emotions Through Facial Expressions
Grimace is a free Flash-based component for displaying emotions through facial expressions.
It is developed in pure AS3, delivered as a lightweight SWF file & supports 6 emotions: joy, surprise, fear, disgust, sadness, anger (and their combinations).
The configuration of the Grimace is accomplished through external XML-based files, which allow full customization.
Some usage ideas for the component:
- visually displaying emotions in a chat application
- using it as a password-meter (a bad password can be "shocked", good one can be "joy", etc)
- online games (status of a player)
P.S. The component is only free for personal use.
