Try directly in your browser this augmented-reality application that puts thoughts on you.

This is one of the samples supplied with the YVision SDK, demonstrating the use of computer vision, realtime 3D graphics and physics. It also demonstrates the use of the multiple-cores of a CPU and the support for GPU acceleration in Silverlight 5.

Download the SDK to check the source code and customize it to your needs.

For security reasons, Silverlight 5 requires your permission to use 3D graphics. To do this, right click on the application, click on “Silverlight” item menu and then on the “Permissions” tab. Select the “http://www.yvision.com:80″ site, click on the “Allow” button and then on “OK”.

NOTES:

This demo requires a webcam and Silverlight 5.

If the camera image does not appear, you may have the wrong video input device assigned. To fix this, right click on the application, click on “Silverlight” item menu and then on the “Webcam / Mic” tab. Select the correct webcam in the “Video Source” drop-down and then click on “OK”.

Silverlight 5 supports 3D graphics in Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome on Windows. Currently, Silverlight 5 does not support 3D graphics on Mac OS X.
