One Way FaceSwap

February 23rd, 2017

I've stumbled upon down the first step for developing face swap feature, and it's quite entertaining by itself. Facial tracking, poisson blending, and model creation. For this example it can be manually triggered, on things which aren't necessarily faces, which means you can now finally safely faceswap with your cat!

You can try out the experiment yourself here , considering you have a webcam, are in a well lit area, and are using Chrome.

TODO - create a tool that exagerrates this.
