Smart Mirror 🖼 project with a taste of conceptual drop 🎨
May 09, 2019
Mask Mirror is a simple simulation where it captures a user's face and allows other person to mask the captured face on his/her's face.
The idea was originally developed from a generic smart mirror, where instead of reflecting the user with holographic diagram which aides the user this mirror explores with the concept of manipulating the someone else's face and implementing onto the other.
You can find the source code for this project here.
Using this mirror is simple. First of all, you need to capture your face with your name:
Once the face is captured, then different user can mask the captured face onto their face.
One key issue on implementing this project is to build a system where the software can automatically get all the tracked data of the newly captured user into a database. The process consisted of implementing the existing tracking algorithm with captured image, so that it can use the data obtained from the image and be applied to the new user's face.
The clmtrackr library also offered different types of preset faces for the users to try:
For future development for this project, here's few things on how can my project improve further and develop:
Since this project has initiative to embody a creative idea, I've received few feedback from the audience:
In addition, few interesting (and important) questions were brought up:
Overall, the project definitely have allowed me to explore deeply about the technical skills by forcing me to look into the black box of tracking algorithms and be able to reimplement it into more interesting use. I am glad with the final result for the project with the fact that mainly the technical aspect of the project has definitely have pulled off - while having space for improvements on the conceptual and meaning side. I want to see where this project can bring me into, perhaps one way or more yet it definitely would be something that I will be passionate about.
