FunBooth tracks faces
Sourcebits today released FunBooth, a new Mac application designed to create unusual digital photos using real-time face detection in live video. FunBooth uses advanced face-tracking algorithms to perform real-time tracking of a human face using a Web cam or Apple iSight camera, providing humorous as well as realistic props that users can add to the faces of people as they are recorded. Users can export photos in several ways, including directly to the Flickr online photo storage site. FunBooth is priced at $10 for a limited time, according to Sourcebits, and built-in controls allow users to modify camera output in real-time with support for adjusting props to more accurately track one's face (system requirements were unavailable).
