HalloweenPic : Facebook App based on the Marilena (opencv port to flash) face detection into Flash

halloweenpic-screenshot

Juan Bermudez did a cool facebook app called HalloweenPic based on the small Flash application I did a while ago.

I’m really happy (and proud 🙂 ) that sharing the sources could help someone creating some cool stuff.

That said, just go and test it here : http://apps.facebook.com/halloweenpic

A closer look at Project Natal on Pixelsumo

Intresting article about Microsoft Project Natal via Pixelsumo .

natal3-camera

“Microsoft bought 3DV Systems. I instantly thought they were going to use this camera and their own sdk after seeing the demos, however Eurogamer reports:
“Aaron Greenberg was even more direct. Asked whether Natal was derived from 3DV technology, he told Eurogamer: ‘No, we built this in house.’”

“Kim admitted ‘it’s a combination of partners and our own software’,…’ ”

There are rumors that Microsoft are working with & licensing patents from Prime Sense, another Israel company like 3DV …..

KLT feature detection port to AS3

A few weeks ago I found an old project which is a port of KLT features detection port to Flash AS3 Class (more information about KLT features here)It’s running really slow, and the project seams to be discontinue, but I tried to recompile it with FlashDevelop and FlexSDK based on the previous test I did with Marilena :

This is what I come up with :

using KLT on webcam

Try the Demo Here

YouUp

YouUp is a fun application by Ubisoft
YouUp transform your head live and add fun to your video conversations ! Create your own custom videos with movie style. Add special FX, change your background. It uses a face detection and tracking system to create 3D masks that follow your every move.

I’ve been working on this project for the past couple years as first a CG Artist and then as a Technical Artist Director working on pipeline, realtime matchmove, augmented reality and so more. The technology used is totally done by our team at Ubisoft.

Feel free to give it a try, it’s free, it works with your Windows Live Account. They’ll update it pretty often with new assets some are free, some other you can buy

Marilena : source code of the Glasses Demo

Somebody remind me that I forgot to share the project of my demo using the Marilena project (OpenCV port).

So here is the source code, nothing fancy, nothing complicated, just a real basic use, but I guess it will help some of you who are interested.

This code is compiled with free tools as Flex SDK, Flash Develop , the optimized version of Marilena by Mario Klingemann and the AS3 Tweenlite class. If you never setup this kind of IDE before I highly recommend this tutorial which will help you with all the settings !

I’m not a programmer so this code is way too simple and not optimized at all, so feel free to re-use it as you want 🙂

Playing with Marilena

this is my first try with OpenCV port to Adobe Flash (Marilena). Meaning the entire face recognition has been done with Flash/ActionScript

For you who doesn’t know yet about Marliena, please have a look at my previous post “MariLena : OpenCV port to ActionScript 3 (AS3 / Flash)”

Marilena : OpenCV for Flash on Vimeo.

Playing around with the port of OpenCV face recognition to ActionScript 3. In this test I did use Mario Klingemann’s optimized version of Marilena (code name of the port).

Would be great to have this kind of feature on Glasses seller website 🙂

next step try to get the Roll rotation 🙂

Mario Klingemann’s Marlena version could be download here : http://www.quasimondo.com/archives/000687.php#000687

Deface : AS3 Face Detection BASED on OpenCV

As my previous post about MariLena (openCV port to AS3), I made more research about it and found this project Deface, which is pretty much the same as MariLena, except that this is not a port of openCV, as the developer says “it’s written from scratch”. so far it’s using Haar cascade file as OpenCV.

I haven’t tried it that much, here is an example : LiveExample
It seems to be a bit slower that MariLena, but I wouldn’t be sure at all

MariLena : OpenCV port to ActionScript 3 (AS3 / Flash)

I dreamed about it, they finally did it ^^.

A crazy guy named Ohtsuka Masakazu have ported the face detection part of OpenCV to AS3 and added the source code named Marilena to the Spark Project a few weeks ago (can’t believe I haven’t notice before today)

Mario Klingemann from Quasimondo.com already made some optimization (see his blog)

I made some test today with a stupid texture, starting from Mario’s webcam example and that’s just fun !!! Well yes, it’s still slow (15 fps on a good computer), but this is just the beginning as I believe that a lot of optimization can still be done, and so what anyway ? It’s flash, it’s everywhere, nothing to install, the fun is there without downloading anything. I really believe in it ! Now with this and FLARToolKit (ARToolKit port to AS3), augmented reality and computer vision is really getting into Flash for sure, and it’s going to give to the community some great opportunity !! I’m looking forward about it

Please, have a test at Mario’s example here

and take also a look at what they did at Squidder.com
