Submission + - Alien FaceHugger v Predator - Face Tracking Hots Up (

mikejuk writes: A simple video camera as input seems to be getting good enough to challenge depth input devices such as the Kinect. Now we have two competing face tracking methods: the new, aptly named, FaceHugger and the award winning Predator. Take a look at the video to see how good it seems to be. FaceHugger not only sticks to the face it is supposed to be tracking but it refuses to be fooled into tracking the wrong face. You can download an executable to try it out on your own machine but so far the source code hasn’t been released. This is one respect that the Predator algorithm wins out. In tests FaceHugger seems to be as good or better than Predator. Can we resist saying it looks like a "face-off".
