Eyeglasses Try-On Software

In 2009 I wrote an application in ActionScript 3, Flash, called VirtualMirror. This software was designed to make it easier to sell eyeglasses over the internet. Customers can do a virtual try-on of sunglasses or eyeglasses…

On 2011 I’m about to add new user friendly features…
VirtualMirror 0.5.x uses automated detection of face, pupils and mouth to fit the glasses on the face of the customer. The required backend (ActionScriptHandler for server/client handling) was written in Perl.

I’m optician / optometrist and programmer so I have a very good knowledge to code this special piece of software…

Since today we have a RC version of VirtualMirror 0.6.0. This version uses Collada format as a new option and does render real 3D. It’s mainly a *.swc library and doesn’t depend on any design. The biggest thing was to make it fast enough, using the flash plugin… I don’t love Adobe Flash very much in my heart, but mostly everyone has this plugin installed at present and it is available for different operating systems.

Using your webcam you can try it here immediately… should be fun…

For best results a cam with at least 640×480 native resolution, good contrast and light condition are needed.

Since last 19 years, I was a member of many open source projects currently for Bluefish, a web development application for experienced users…  (see Bluefish -> About -> my name and email address is there – as RedHat rpm maintainer). I’m a registered Linux Fedora rpm packager. I also have wide experience with C, Linux ad FreeBSD…
