As Salaam Mualaykum,
I've just come across this video and so I thought that I should share it, not quite sure what to make of this.
It's an amazing use of the camera's ability to face track and a great use of live masking, but I instantly thought about how this could be used in the wrong way. It didn't help when the guy in the video said the following:
Narrator: Yahoo Japan is considering developing a chat application, featuring this ability to make faces anonymousGuy in video: We think Face Stealer could be used to talk easily with your face hidden. For example, A MAN COULD JOIN IN VIDEO CHAT USING A PRETTY WOMAN'S FACE
If something like this is perfected and used for the wrong purpose, online identity theft would be the next big thing. That's just my opinion and it is all based on the assumption that someone will use this for evil.
What do you think? I've perhaps not given it as much thought as I should have or haven't thought about it from a positive perspective. I can only think of one positive use currently for this, but I'd like to read about your views before I post that Insha'Allah.
Wa Salaam Mualaykum,
