Real-Time Face Substitution in Javascript 63

An anonymous reader writes with news of an interesting demo for clmtrackr (a Javascript library for tracking of facial features) that hides your face using 3D masks overlayed on the video from your webcam using WebGL. The effect is kind of neat, and a bit creepy. The demo works in Chromium here, but not in Firefox (Debian unstable). There are a couple other demos; the facial deformation demo is reminiscent of the intro screen to Mario 64.

    Dark faces are challenging unless using projected IR light(a la night vision) due to these things usually relying on contrast to locate the nostrils, eyes and mouth. Basically, the closer the skin tone is to the iris and nostrils, the higher video fidelity and lighting quality needed to differentiate the two. It isn't a racism thing and can be worked around with better lighting or a better camera if IR isn't an option.
