Reaction GIF Generator
Use your facial expression to search for relevant GIFs.

I'm using the Microsoft Emotion API to identify facial expressions and the HTML5 method "getUserMedia" to access the webcam (so it only works on desktop).

I find that the Emotion API consistently underestimates how negative my facial expressions are so... if you're making an unimpressed/bitch please/angry face, try hamming it up.

The Emotion API only seems to recognize unadorned faces in well-lit images, so for best results take off glasses or hats and make sure your face is well-lit!

this is very cool! I'd love for the option to upload a pre-existing image, rather than requiring you take a new picture
