Jason Kridner from BeagleBoard.org and Texas Instruments is currently wandering around World Maker Faire New York with a BeagleBone-based mustache machine. The device uses a webcam and computer vision to detect faces and superimpose fancy mustaches. The project is powered by an off-the-shelf battery pack, which he keeps in his pocket. If you spot Jason at the Faire, say hello and see what a more distinguished version of yourself would look like.
