Very nice. Can detect faces even on very low (160 x120) resolution!
Really? That's great! Did it detect the features of the face at that resolution? I think it'll be neat to return the face features as coordinates so people can calculate face features as well. Have a few ideas for this control
It was off just slightly in the overlay but captured mouth eyes and nose with jaw and I had a hat on! All other resolutions are perfect match.

I look forward to what you have up your sleeve!
