Manual

The Sighthound Cloud Detection API returns the location of any people and faces found in robot camera video. Faces can be analyzed for gender, age, pose, or emotion; and a landmark detector can find the various facial features in the detected faces, including eyes, nose and mouth, by fitting 68 landmark points to those features.

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!
