Mona Lisa is watching you (Processing Project) - Haunted Portraits, Good for Halloween!
Halloween is coming, it is time to prepare a halloween project. There is an urban myth that when you enter a castle or old house, the portrait painting on the wall would have one scary effect, the eyes are always following you! it tracks your movement. How about using a big LCD monitor and a web camera to make one "Following-Eye" portrait to scare people:)
I used Processing with Opencv to make this "Following-eye" portrait project, and the famous painting "Mona Lisa" is used for demonstration.
The demonstration goes here:
To make it more real, I suggest you can put the monitor in vertical orientation and run the project in full screen. Of course, if you can add a wooden frame on top of the monitor would be prefect! Send me a photo if you make one!
