I’ve just completed another project for my friends at Skive. The Vodafone G-Force project simulates the effect of the g-forces experienced by a Formula 1 driver during a race. The idea is to place the user into the driving seat and show how the forces stretch and warp their face in potentially amusing ways.
A user can upload their own image, select one from their Facebook gallery or use a webcam to capture one. Once a race is complete the user can share snapshots taken during the race in numerous ways: they can print, upload to their Facebook wall, send the images to a friend and save the images to their desktop.
It was an interesting project to work on because it gave me the opportunity to use Pixel-Bender filters to create the face-warping effects. I was pretty impressed by the capabilities of Pixel-Bender and look forward to using it in future projects.
