All I want to know is if it can do enough face detection to replicate this super creepy robot spider.

I know! I can imagine all kinds of uses for it, but frankly facial tracking is the one that I keep coming back to. Unfortunately they don't show any examples of that working.

Hi Caleb, note the following extract from the text:

(While it won't do facial recognition, its developers say that it should be able to do facial tracking in the near future.)

 

BTW, I'm drooling too

Copycat :-) At least we'll be able to recognise each other when we meet at a conference -- are you planning on attending DesignCon or Design West in 2014?
