This Processing sketch functions like an interactive mirror which provides users a fun way to choose a hairstyle and see it immediately applied to their own image. If a user likes a hairstyle, he/she can take a picture (screenshot) of their head with the hairstyle applied by pressing a button embedded in a photo camera remote. Technically this project was realized using the inbuilt iSight camera, simple color tracking in Processing and a custom made camera remote using a pushbutton connected to the Arduino board.
