I just came across this demo for real-time 3D video effects that can be used with the Logitech QuickCam web camera. It is quite impressive – I remember seeing similar technology as cutting-edge computer graphics research only a few years ago. It doesn’t seem ultra-robust, but good enough for having fun at least.
Together with voice changers, it kinda solves the non-anonimity problem of webcams and microphones.
Check it out, and think of Microsoft’s upcoming camera, and Sony’s EyeToy 2.
