Real-Time Face Substitution Will Hide You In The Scariest Way Possible

Real-Time Face Substitution Will Hide You In The Scariest Way Possible

Audun Mathias Øygard's creative experiment uses real-time facial recognition to hide your face in a webcam feed with different masks. That could be handy if you want to scare your friends with a real-time Nicolas Cage imitation (don't forget to use it with a proper soundboard) or just confuse them while playing online.

If you have a webcam, you can try it our for yourself here. Also, thank god Hatsune Miku is not included in the demo list. That would make things more frightening.

    this just reminds me of the scramble suits in a scanner darkly. but less cool.

      First thing I thought too

      That exactly what i was thinking when i saw the picture, it would be cool if they could develop this to look like the suits and have tonnes of different faces.

    "I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes."

    I'm guessing eventually people will use this to "photoshop" themselves to look better in video.

    That's nothing, I'd be more interested in playing with this!
