  2. Working with Arturo Castro on some ideas surrounding face substitution. The scramble suit is a fictional technology from Philip K. Dick's 1977 novel, "A Scanner Darkly". It's effectively a cloak that hides the identify of the wearer by making it impossible to describe or remember them. There's a nice excerpt here technovelgy.com/ct/content.asp?Bnum=997

  3. [Edit, June 2016: To the best of my knowledge, this work with Arturo Castro is the first example of realistic "face swapping" in realtime. If you're interested in experimenting with the technique, I recommend Audun's implementation here auduno.github.io/clmtrackr/examples/facesubstitution.html ]

    Working on an idea with Arturo Castro vimeo.com/29279198 I feel like "good" blending looks almost too natural to be surprising. It doesn't leave any interpolation up to your imagination. It's possible to push this style further, so it's less of a blend and more of a replacement, but then you get unnatural colors and shadows.

  4. A FAT + openFrameworks speed project!

    Auto Smiley is a computer vision application that runs in the background while you work. The software analyzes your face while you are working and if it detects you smiling it sends the the ascii smiley face letters as keyboard presses :) to the front most application. Auto Smiley has many uses from just straight up convenience to enforcing honesty in your online communication :)

    Download the app and source code here:

  5. Kinect Russian Roulette is a speed project by Theo Watson, which allows you to play Russian Roulette with just your hand and a Kinect.

    The project was made in 3 hours at the Art Hack Day at 319 Scholes and is made with openFrameworks 007 and ofxKinect.

    This project is tongue and cheek and is not endorsed by anyone or any brand. Just a ridiculous idea which needed to be made :)

    Code ( very messy ) will be posted to github.
