Posts » I am in your webcam, putting on hats

Fez PigeonWe remember being impressed by the (now apparently defunct) Fez Pigeon site, which added a cute little hat to a webcam view of a pet pigeon. We are pretty confident that most people, if they reflected for just a moment, would find that this is exactly the service needed to fill that gaping hole in their lives they don't even know they have. To evaluate interest in the automatic putting of hats on things, we've developed a webcam puppet that does exactly that. Plug in a webcam, load the puppet, and click on something in the scene that would look better with a party hat on it. And behold! The hat appears, following the object as it moves. You'll have better luck if the object is nice and simple, with good color contrast with the background.
