Concept for High-Tech Prop

1303 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  heresjohnny
I'm a software guy that's developing a concept for a creepy portrait of a figure whose eyes follow you as you move through a room like in the old Scooby Doo cartoons. I attached an animation of what the finished product should look like but there are a lot of secret-sauce behind-the-scenes technical features to make it work. If there are any industry folks who are interested, please PM me!

Let me know what you think. :)

Face detection/tracking is totally doable with OpenCV, but you need to be comfortable developing in C/C++. The Beta version of OpenCV 3.0 has changed some of the face detection functions that you may come across referenced in older how-tos, so be sure to check out the latest docs if you use this version.

Another thing to note is that the Pis are fairly processor limited, so your frame rate may not be very high.
