Smile at your webcam, and it will draw you a tree. The longer you smile, the fuller your tree will be.

Why? It’s a simple hack to put a couple of ofx addons together, and I think it’s kind of interesting to control your computer with facial expressions. Okay, there’s the dystopian-future-world where you have to smile all the time, sure, terrible. But also, what if, instead of shifting modes in Vim with goofy keystrokes, what if I could just smile instead? What if it were like a piano pedal, giving you extra ways to input stuff?

Plus, programmatically generated trees are cool.

Code: on github. Uses ofxCv and ofxProcTree.
