Magical HTML5 moustache.

Introducing HTML5: Video and Audio

magical HTML5 moustache.
This is a cool AR application.  One that put's
moustache's on people.  Yea I know some webcams come with software to do that.

HTML5 can do AR, meaning you can use your camera phone to point to a web site and run applications that to image processing tricks.

That ability to completely change in an out the AR engine from a URL changes everything.
Since HTML5 based software isn't locked in to legacy libraries and drivers and the massive web of version compatible issues that come with it.

I only hope the HTML5 people keep their act together.

So far the most important function for being able to capture video in HTML5 is:


This only works in Opera by default.  In Chrome you need to run a command line argument --enable-media-stream to enable it.

I was surprise to see that the  NVIDIA 3D Vision system used HTML5 exclusively for playback of Youtube 3D videos.
