Mission Type: Competitive

Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to build and share an “emotional analysis” skill for Misty II!

For this challenge, you’ll use what you learned in the training mission to build an “emotional analysis” skill of your own. Combine Misty’s face detection, image capture, and speech capture capabilities with third-party services to have Misty detect what you might be feeling based on your facial expression. Code Misty to respond to this information by doing something useful to cheer you up, responding with an emotional expression of her own, or however else you might like.

When you’re ready, use a service like GitHub to upload your code to a public repository, and share your skill in the Misty Skills section of the community. For bonus points, share a video of Misty running your skill on YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter, or wherever you’d like, and post a link in this thread. (Don’t forget to share your project on social media with the #MistyMissions tag!)


The winner will receive some cool Misty gear!

Submission Requirements

You can build this skill using any tools and third-party services you’d like. Entries for Round 1 must be in by midnight, MST on January 3, 2019.
