Face Input

Filed under: tech — Tags: , , , — zproxy @ 7:23 am

Have you seen those single input games? One where you just have to press space to jump? One where you have to press space to gain height for your air plane? Where you change the orientation of your phone to see the beer glass being depleted?

What about face input? You can either blink or move your head. You can even ask your girlfriend for a split screen game.

The future input events:

  • this.onkeypress
  • this.onclick
  • this.ontouch
  • this.onvoice
  • this.onface
  • this.oncameratilt
  • this.onacceleration
  • this.onorientation
  • this.onhoverhands
  • this.oneye
  • this.oneyesclosed
  • this.onmusic
  • this.onmind
  • this.ondevicesensor
  • this.ongps
  • this.onmagnet
  • this.onnfc
  • this.ongaze
  • this.ontoeclick
  • this.onnearby
  • this.onfaraway
  • this.onheadnodyes
  • this.onheadshakeno
