Tech day: Facial recognition on my magic mirror

Last month we had another tech day! On this day we try to do cool stuff. This time I had the idea to use facial recognition on my magic mirror (See my previous blog). So with a group of 5 people, we started thinking of the requirements. When someone is standing in front of the mirror, we want the mirror to detect that. This means we need motion detection! We also want to recognise the user and his emotion. If we can recognise the user, it would be cool to display a message on the mirror or even speak out a message. Well enough requirements for a day! We divided the group in two teams, one working on the frontend, the other on the backend and it was time to get to work!
