Do you want to measure your energy level?

Insurance company ONVZ developed an app in collaboration with Lifeguard called NRGY that does just that! The app measures heart rate variability, reaction time and facial expressions to measure your energy level. And what better tool to measure facial expressions than FaceReader!

NRGY generates a score that reflects your energy level of the day.

The more you use NRGY to measure your energy level within the day or week, the more insights you get on your own energy level and how you can influence this.

Download NRGY now. Available on Android and App store

FaceSwap on Microsoft/Dell event

Written by VicarVision on . Posted in Blog, Current Events, Media, Past Events

Last week the Halloween party started already at the Brussels office of Microsoft/Dell:

The faces of several Microsoft employees were blended with a horror face that moved based on your facial movements in real-time!

The audience had a blast with scars running from cheek to cheek and pins coming from their face, simply amazing.

The experience wouldn’t be the same without a fully customized FaceSwap theme that contained the slogan “Happy HelloWindows 10”.

VicarVision congratulates Dr. Peter Lewinski on successfully defending his dissertation and obtaining his PhD!

His thesis is titled “The Role of Facial Expression in Resisting Enjoyable Advertisements” and demonstrates how consumers can resist persuasion by modulating their bodily expression. He used FaceReader, VicarVision´s automatic facial coding software, in a series of 12 experiments. Although FaceReader is often used to test advertising effectiveness in the domain of neuro-marketing, Peter demonstrated that our technology can be also used to empower consumers.

The main message of his thesis has been so far featured in Vrij Nederland, BNR Nieuwsradio and the scientific blog of Noldus IT.
