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 :)

  1. By the way, if you want to use this demo at a presentation, talk or podcast, go right way..
    Just copy the SWF file and it should work with no trouble.
    Please, just refeer us on it.

    I just tried it but it didn’t work for me. Maybe it’s not compatible with flash 10 player …

    Is it possible to share the source ?

    Thanks

  4. sure I can. It still depends on a proprietary lib that I cannot share (for the drawing..svg editor), but will share the rest of the source so you can take a look as an example of face recognition.

    thanks
