We present the implementation of a data collection tool of multicultural and multi-modal laughter for the 14th Interspeech conference. The application will automatically record and analyze audio and video stream to provide real-time feedback. Using this tool, we expect to collect multimodal cues of different kind of laughers elicited in participants with funny videos, as well as jokes and tongue-twisters games with the Nao robot. The collected corpus will be used for paralinguistic challenges.
