cat face detecting (attempt…)

I saw an automatic cat laser pointer video online.

For this project I want to change the laser pointer to a camera and make it a cat face detecting tool, so that I can live stream the video on iphone.

Using what I learned from the laser project, I came up with the following:

Using processing and openframeworks, I was able to achieve the following:

processing code:

Notice the image insert in the code, as of now I can only feed jpg image taken by webcam and feed them to the program. Feeding video crashes my laptop.

detaching faces:

After I set up everything and here comes the problem… The program does not detect cat’s face…

It never came across my mind…

SO there it is – my attempt on pet detecting camera tool.
