Flash Face Recogniton Drawer or DIY Flash MaskApr 15
Recently I saw some posts about the port of OpenCV’s face recognition to Adobe Actionscript. That’s great news and one guy even did some enhancements. So, after I came across with this demo, where you get the choose a pair of glasses and they “stick” to you face, I thought that what would be cool was if you could draw the glasses or for that propose, any other thing. We have a nice Flex/Actionscript framework that enable us to draw SVG, so why not try it out.
After only a couple of hours, the app was almost running. Some edges cleaned and here it is!
This is very basic stuff: you stop the camera, wait for it to recognize you face, so it’s perfectly align with the frame and then just use the tools to draw!
Here is an example of me in a lame pirate costume
No more waiting, where it is. Enjoy… oh!.. and please send photos of what you were able to do… pleeeasse (actually, a comment with a flickr – or any other – URL is just perfect).
Nice face paintings:
