Under the great psychological stress due to COVID19, "Laughter Catcher 2.0" app allows users to use "Laughter Yoga" to relieve stress and strengthen the relationship with their family and friends. Users are encouraged to practise laughter yoga anytime and anywhere. As they expand their circle of friends through the app, they can practise with each other and spread positive energy to more people. Moreover, the app’s emotion recogniser can read user’s emotion and quantify the degree of happiness by converting happiness into “happiness index”. When the app detects a sudden drop in “happiness index”, an SMS message will be sent to a person the user trusts and reminds him/her to talk to the user so as to echo to the initiative of "Shall We Talk".
