More Flash Halloween Webcam Toys

Welcome to this time of the year again when people scoop out pumpkin seeds and costume shops make their year's worth of sales during one weekend. Halloween! So nice to be kids again. And now you can be one too, without even leaving your computer desk – just hit the images below and have some fun.

We've teamed up with Leipzig Flash studio Tastenkunst and made these two apps. Marcel Klammer and his team had developed Beyond Reality Face technology which allows using human faces as markers for augmented reality. PhotoBoo substitutes the face so you can experience how does it feel to be a (dead) celebrity.

GooTube is based on my last year's experiment – Black Hole Sun and similarly uses face.com API technology to find feature points in a face, but then BRF's Point Tracker is used to track these points and finally HiSlope helps to apply the distortions to the live webcam feed.

Both apps utilise FaceBook connect so it's even easier to socially share your alter ego (and even set your FB profile pic!) Now go and make goofies out of yourselves. And don't forget to spread the word - boooooooooo!

Many thanks to PtitJean for his initial face.com API for AS3.
