Arturo Castro posted a video demo he made on Vimeo entitled, ‘Faces,’ which features real-time face substitution using the Facetracker program. Castro combined the original Facetracker codes with the ofxFacetracker modification to produce these comical but impressive results. The Facetracker software was created in 2009, and it can recognize facial features and map them into a computer. This hack by Castro allows him to project images of famous people onto his own face, with the images following his movements and expressions in real-time.  Some of the celebrity faces Castro had fun testing on the software include Brad Pitt, Barack Obama, and even the late Michael Jackson.
