Playful App Gigglebug Face Race Gets Kids Making Faces at the Camera

Does your child love making faces at the camera? If so, Gigglebug’s Face Race is an app they might like. The game, from Finnish developer Gigglebug Entertainment, tasks kids to copy expressions from animated characters. The more accurately they replicate the faces, the higher their score (and the bigger the laughs).

The game works like this: after choosing one of four characters to play with, the player looks into their device’s front-facing camera to have their picture calibrated against the frame. They then attempt to copy the character’s expressions as the app snaps pictures. The face detection algorithm evaluates the elements in the pictures — such as the positions of the eyes, cheeks, teeth, and the tilt of the head — to give feedback in the form of playful star rating.
