Face tracking with x10

If you are looking to do some face tracking and don’t know where to start, this explanation of how to do it with X10 modules could be pretty helpful. Aside from having, what some could consider to be, the absolute most annoying website ever for a company, X10 also makes modular systems for home automation. X10 also refers to the industry standard for home automation, so sometimes just saying you did something with X10 can get confusing.   He is using the SDK to write custom code for the tracking, which you can download from the project page.

    I honestly think that most prawn sites are probably more tasteful, I struggled to find the tucked away link to their product list, (hint stroll way way down past all those flashing ads)

    Didn’t the pioneer the use of pop-up ads? They do have comment box at the bottom of the page asking how to make the site better.

    @naus3a

    It’s not bad if you have something like flashblock, so it doesn’t run all those horrible flash ads by default.

    The funniest one to me was the one that said “HOME SECURITY!!”, showed a house chained and locked, a high tech security keypad, and… a smiling girl. What’s the message here? Is this for guys who suffer “Letters To Forum” style cheerleader break-ins?

  11. naus3a says:

    @ asdf: lol yes, it also works on drawn smilies :)

  12. Faelenor says:

    Is it really a girl in bikini trying to sell me a x10 gadget?!

  13. secure wifi says:

  14. ToMSoms says:

    “most annoying website ever” can only agree.
