Craving for a moustache? If not a real one, then at least a virtual one? A new extension in Google Chrome allows you to either ‘own’ a moustache or add that fluffy hair above the persons lips when a picture opens up in the web page.
Called as Mustachio, this extension automatically detects all the images on a web page and selects those which have a face in them. And then as you browse around, it adds up that ‘dreaded’ moustache and then . . . . Voila!
Mustachio uses Face.com API to detect faces in images. It usually takes a couple of seconds to process the images after having loaded a webpage successfully.
My excitement to play around with it was short-lived when I found this update on its official page:
The extension went viral; the servers don’t cope with the load – sorry. It works intermittently at the moment. To help cope with the load, it only processes images over 45000 pixels (that’s 300 * 150 px or similar) at the moment.
I am pretty much excited to try this Chrome extension for I am dying to see how Lady Gaga would look in a moustache.
To all those naughty readers who want to have some fun, you can download it from here and play around. (You can thank me later ). Meanwhile you can watch the demo here.
