Mimicker Alarm, a Microsoft Garage Project
Mimicker Alarm is a morning alarm clock app for Android that helps you wake up and stay up by playing a simple game, called a "Mimic". To dismiss your alarm, you must mimic the action given, lest your alarm ring again. Each game is powered by Microsoft Project Oxford, a set of machine learning APIs aimed at helping developers understand and act on the data around them.
|Manage your alarms||Express yourself with Emotion API||Color capture with Vision API||Tongue twister with Speech API|
You can install Mimicker Alarm in the Google Play Store for free. All of the source code for Mimicker Alarm is available on GitHub for developers to browse and reference how to use Microsoft Project Oxford. We welcome your comments, feedback, and contributions.

Creating new mimics
You can create new mimics really easily! Inherit from the MimicWithCameraFragment class and implement the verify function that takes in a Bitmap. You can readily use the Emotion API and Vision API!
For more Project Oxford APIs just include their maven packages.
For the new Mimic to show up, include it in pref_mimics so users can enable/disable it. Finally add the class into the MimicFactory class.
