jQuery face detection plugin

Sometimes I like to play with face detection and blog about it, I already showed you a PHP face detection class and a Flash AS3 face detection and recognition library, now it’s time to give a try to Jay Salvat‘s face detection jquery plugin, based on Liu Liu’s work.

As every face detection algorithm, it’s not perfect and I am showing you some images which are perfectly recognized and some images which aren’t recognized at all.

But most of all, I am showing you how easy is to use this plugin:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
	<head>
		<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.0.3.min.js"></script> 
		<script src="js/facedetection/ccv.js"></script> 
		<script src="js/facedetection/face.js"></script>
		<script src="js/jquery.facedetection.js"></script> 
		<script>
			$(document).ready(function() {
				$("img").click(function(){
					var coords = $(this).faceDetection();
					for(i=0;i<coords.length;i++){
						$("<div>",{
							"class":"facebox",
							"css":{
								"left":coords[i].positionX+"px",
								"top":coords[i].positionY+"px",
								"width":coords[i].width+"px",
								"height":coords[i].height+"px"
							}
						}).appendTo("#content");
					}
                         alert("done");
				});
			});
		</script>
		<style>
			.facebox{
				border:4px solid #ff0000;
				position:absolute;
			}
			img{
				cursor:pointer;
			}
		</style>
	</head>
	<body>
		<div id = "content">
			<img src="img/01.jpg" />
               <img src="img/02.jpg" />
               <img src="img/03.jpg" />
               <img src="img/04.jpg" />
               <img src="img/05.jpg" />
               <img src="img/06.jpg" />
               <img src="img/07.jpg" />
               <img src="img/08.jpg" />
               <img src="img/09.jpg" />
               <img src="img/10.jpg" />
               <img src="img/11.jpg" />
               <img src="img/12.jpg" />
		</div>
	</body>
</html>

And now, some images for you to try. Click on an image to run face detection.
