EmoVu specializes in creating emotionally intelligent tools that can perceive the emotions of people by analyzing micro expressions using webcams. Supporting standard video, image, as well as image sequence formats, this emotive predictive analysis can help determine a user's opinion on the content they are viewing in real time. This allows developers to smartly tailor content to highly niched demographics, using data acquired on age, gender, mood, and more to affect content either before or after the content debuts, ideally helping to boost ROI for lean campaigns. The EmoVu Desktop SDk empowers developers to create desktop embedded applications or emotionally intelligent devices, offering a wealth of emotive data to aid in the process to allow 3rd parties to collect and process data collected on the device. EmoVu Desktop SDK is made available for WIndows, Mac OSX, and Linux.
For those who like to dabble with a bit of photo editing but aren't really inclined to pursue more advanced and sophisticated tools like Photoshop, an online photo ending tool like Ribbet may be just what they're looking for. This app may not give you the most groundbreaking features when it comes to cutting edge image editing, but it certainly has appealing functions that are easy to use and easy to access online, allowing users to get really creative with their photos. What's also cool is that developers can integrate this photo editor into their websites, using the Ribbet API.

The process of converting between formats is known as transcoding. It is a CPU intensive job, and with hundreds of formats to choose from presents developers with a significant challenge. Zencoder is a new web service that is looking to provide a solution.
