whom I might be working for at any given time.

MySpace Face Recognition App

I was called into complete a Face Recognition Flash app for MySpace last week.  It was a promo for the Black Eye Peas.

After you give permission for Flash to turn on your camera, it locks in on your face (center your face for this) and then song begins. Cute 8bit art gets blasted on to your face (sunglasses, old game icons, etc).  You can move your face around and the art will follow you.  And then you can snap stills of the silliness with a button. When the song ends you can select screen grabs to upload to your MySpace account.

We did encounter one problem with Flash accessing the camera on some macs.  Apparently there is a bug with Mac OS 10.6.5 and the camera.  However there is a work around.

Concluded Deluxe Flash Video Player

I’ve just wrapped up a deluxe Flash video player for BBE.  The player has a customized views (size, gallery layout) and tracks all user interactions and records them to a cookie.

I’ve built many Flash video players. On this one I utilized a few different design patterns (Decorator, Command, Singleton, MVC.).

The project is ‘done’ but scheduled to restart July 20 when BBE will have some deals signed with clients to use the player.
