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 :D). Meanwhile you can watch the demo here.
