Multiple Face detection in AS3 using OpenCV demo

30 04 2009

fdt_as3_me_and_jens.jpg I got a mutiple face detection in Flash application running smoothly which is rather nice :) Thanks a million to Squidder and to the original author of the OpenCV file @ Intel, Rainer Lienhart. The deploy has  a zipped up XML document with Haar Classifier pattern recognition…

The AS3 unzips this data, grabs the blob/face detection data, polls frames from the camera and scans them for faces. When it finds them it will draw a rectangle around the detected faces and render them back on top of the video feed.

Check it out at

A quick nose at the OpenCV Wikipedia stub will show you just how interesting this technology is as it’s used for:

FDT made knocking this together and sharing it on SVN in house at Glue a breeze. Hopefully I’ll knock something up with this and share some source other than what Squidder has already kindly posted.


Augmented Reality in Flash demo’s

Saqoosha AR Awesome augmented reaility in Flash demo from a gentleman from Japan called Saqoosha (includes  source code too which is always appreciated). There is also some quality stuff in this area over at Draw*logic which explains how to use the ARToolKit software library and more goodies at Digital Pictures. All great stuff

There are so many potential applications for this; think – “Help me Obi Wan Kanobi, you’re my only hope” :)
