AR: Video of Real-Time Virtual Faces

Wow, who needs a CamStache when you’ve got a whole cam-face? You can even have a AR Steve Jobs mask just like his book cover.

It’s still rough but you can imagine the creepy possibilities. And how many hours that Webcam Girl would spend trippin’ on it. (Thanks, Paul)

Why’d we do this? All to get people in the mood for Petaluma Whiskerino & Crafterino this Saturday, October 9th. Are you growing to be there?   See the rest »
