Jason shows how easy it is to use a BeagleBone, logging into the board with the help of a USB cable band and plugging in a keyboard and mouse. The face detection rig he demonstrates is only a Playstation Eye webcam and some freely downloadable software on top of the basic BB hardware that ships with the board. He adds on a LCD that displays what’s showing on the webcam, with the face detection algorithm slapping on a fake moustache as a bonus.
