I just finished my Smiley-O-Mat - it's a tin-box with 3 turning knobs that allows you to controll the appearence of a smiley. With 3 simple turns I can now tell your co-workers, familymembers, ... how you feel at the moment and if it is wise to talk to me right now :-)

my blog post contains the processing and the arduino code

This is what the controller looks like


and this are some of my smileys

Hi! Very nice smiley-wink

But how many smileys can you exactly create?

I love this!  I need one to point toward my kids.

I think everyone in the world should have one of these in a hat with a revolving marquee.

Throw this on a 320x240 lcd, all in one little package.  Or even one of those 8x8 LED modules.

that's fun, thank you.

It also has law enforcement applications.  if you get mugged by a smiley you can use this to do a really good likeness.

I wonder actually if you could adapt it to do human faces with three knobs - general shape of face, hair, expression?
