Your Android cellphone will be safer with this anti-theft feature

Google has just released the code for Project Gameface, an innovative project that allows smartphone users to control with facial expressions. After being introduced at the Google I/O event, this project is now available as open-source for Android cellphone developers.

Quoting information from The VergeWednesday (15/5/2024), how Project Gameface works uses the device camera and facial expression database from MediaPipe to translate facial movements into navigation commands.

For example, the movement of opening the mouth can be used to move the cursor on the screen. Meanwhile, by raising the eyebrows, users can click and drag.

For your information, this project was initially aimed at gamers with disabilities. However, Google has now partnered with Incluzza, a social enterprise in India focused on accessibility to expand the use of Gameface to other areas, such as Education and work.

It is said that the inspiration behind Project Gameface is Lance Carr, a game streamer who has quadriplegia. Lance's collaboration with Google aims to create a more affordable and accessible solution, compared to more expensive head-tracking systems.
