Webcam Project Lets People Face Swap With Celebrities

Digital models lets people “try on” masks of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Chuck Norris and Obama.

Created by Audun Øygard, the CLMtrackr is an open-source JavaScript project that lets you “try on” faces of celebrities and other notable figures. To accurately capture your facial movements, the virtual model plots 70 reference points on your face and uses them to add effects to the masks in real time. In a matter of seconds, the reflection in your web browser will be transformed into Chuck Norris or Kim Kardashian.

The concept is a novel; but the presentation is still a bit rough. While the movements are somewhat in sync, the pictures, however, are very pixelated. Øygard explains, “Face substitution is one of the things which probably will get much better over time and we’ll see it pop up more places.” With a very prospective future ahead, the development of digital technology is looking to be encompass more interactive and user-friendly improvements.
