It looks so real on her hair... I’m impressed
there are apps available since some time which literally do exactly this, some in realtime, some not. You should give it a try!
edit: type "hair color" and try the apps, idk which one is best....there's
You got names for those apps?
This exact app is called YouCam Makeup. It works well enough on my phone but gets a little choppy sometimes
This apps gonna blow up now. They should thank you for the advertisement. Instead of paying the $100k for a set up at CES.
Do you think some company paid $100,000 to get a set up at CES... then chose to display some free app quality hair color changer?
You don’t think that a tech demo from CES 2019 while it’s 2019 has anything more going on with it?
yeah its the realtime 60fps feature which is quite demanding that they're showcasing, that's really smooth!
This has a TON of commercial applications. Also the engine that’s driving is quite impressive. It’s showing how machine learning is able to detect and track hair in real time. This type of tech will be hugely applicable in different ways as phone tech and smart glasses begin to develop in the main stream.
fabby look for real time coloring on Android if any1 is curious. Haircolor studio is cancer as far as I can tell
This is the Fabby Look app by Google Research.
I met with these vendors only a year and a half ago and this has taken leaps and bounds since even then
This is a genuinely cool use of technology. Not an important one, but a cool one that does have a practical purpose.
This is potentially the future of online shopping. Being able to test out what different products will look like on you will be huge
Wasn’t that like a big advertisement of the Kinect when the Xbox one came out?
This is really important tech to have in every salon.
I know I think it’s cool but the Kinect was suppose to have the clothing thing that was suppose to be the thing all the cool kids do
The problem with Kinect was that it over promised and WAY under delivered. I can't tell you the number of times I had to scream at my Kinect just to turn itself off or on until I just said F-it and did it myself. After people realized the tech wasn't mature enough yet people largely abandoned the Kinect.
That's because they weren't clear about how to properly calibrate it.
Don't make your room completely silent. Turn on fans, AC, ambient noise, etc for it to filter out and make sure your speakers are cranked to the max it will take and it will work way better.
The kinect absolutely under-delivered, but most problems people had with it came from it being marketed terribly and very little support around it, and people turned it into "THIS IS A PIECE OF JUNK!" when it's really not.
I had to make a video when the thing came out because mine worked perfectly and people were constantly bitching about it then too. The videos gone, but you can see this is something I've been preaching for years: https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/comments/20df47/the_power_of_a_properly_calibrated_kinect/
That's basically the same situation with any complex piece of technology. Those willing to get it working generally have a good time. The problem is that the average user is the same one that's incapable of using a computer. They have no capacity for troubleshooting and no willingness to learn to properly use their tech. Despite engineer's best efforts, we don't have tech that's robust enough to be entirely idiot-proofed yet.
Nothing is ever idiot proof. If we ever make it that far, they will just invent a better idiot
You're right Civil_vagina_puncher, there will always be a better idiot.
I’m not sure where this opinion will sit with reddit, but what the hell:
That’s exactly why apple products are so successful - they do, on the whole, work better out of the box then other manufacturers and require very little in the way of troubleshooting. It’s about as close as we currently get to idiot proof. This comes hand in hand with the inability of users to tinker with apple products (by design) as it stops people breaking functionality.
So on the one hand we want idiot proof products that just work, but on the other we want products that can be twisted to our every whim by customisation - I’m really not sure that the two can live side by side.
It also can do motion well if done with third party plugins. The software side hampered it a lot more than hardware. (Its not amazing but if you want to do some little mocap without dumping a bunch of money get a couple kinects from goodwill or Ebay for cheap)
and then you forget it's plugged in and everyone hears you talking shit in a video game
Kinect was the shit and it's being used today in vr for full body tracking. It just came out early. The dance game was fucking incredible and actually helped you dance. I'm glad microsoft pushed it and wish it was a bigger tech. Luckily with Vr it is being used much better will finally see some real play.
It'll probably save on shipping when people return clothes for different sizes/colors.
>Shows what you will look like after your haircut
>Nobody ever cuts their hair again
Unfortunately hair coloring isn't 1:1 It would be very hard to reproduce the color from the app in real life since the dye will have to be mixed specifically for the costumers natural color. So you'd need a machine to mix the colors based on the customers hair color and type
I don't think it would be difficult for the program to take your natural hair colour into account, if it doesn't already.
I don't think the Kinect can even do something like that. I worked with it for a project and as far as i know it can't track the actual volume of your body, it only tracks your skeleton so to speak.
The tech is super cool but dumb and gimmicky at the same time, im not surprised that it failed as hard as it did.
wow, been a while
That video has to take the cake for most misleading advertising video of all time.
I was so excited to buy a Kinect. Was first in line the day it came out.
I forgot how bad that ad was. It's almost as bad as the car commercials that try to convince you that they use real, unbiased costumers.
Yeah, I remember that.
I remember in the mid 2000's I used some web site where you could "try on" glasses. You uploaded a photo of your face, and it just overlaid an image of the frame on top. You could move it around and resize it, but it looked terrible because it didn't match up with the angle of your face, or the lighting, etc.
It's awesome we're at the point where this can be done in real-time, and look convincingly real.
You can do it on the Ray Ban web site live with a webcam nowadays. It’s been available since about 5 years now.
Zenni Optical does this. You take a straight-on photo and identify your pupils for it and it'll overlay their glasses for you. Looks good.
Being able to test out what different products will look like on you will be huge
Back in the first dot com boom (and then bust) there was a website called boo.com that pretty much tried to do this.
Well, putting the clothes you chose on a 3D model that was vaguely like you.
It got huge amounts of investment, blew through it and failed spectacularly. The book about it (by one of the company founders) is a really enjoyable read and gives an insight into the madness of the original dot com boom and bust.
(Link to the book - boo hoo on amazon.
Timing is important. Before PayPal there was something called flooze. Online money to protect you from fraud. I met one of the founders some time ago. They were offered 300 million and his partners turned it down. He was bartending.
yeah smart mirrors are gonna be the next must have at some point. that or it'll get integrated into our tvs.
aren't smart mirrors already a thing? i've only seen them used for synced phone notifications and hidden television screens though
That Japanese billionaire - the dude going around the moon with SpaceX - his website has a similar, albeit much simpler, process as well. Lets you see how clothes look on you, iirc.
Cher used this technology in Clueless.
The underlying infrastructure used to create this kind of app is probably one of the most important technological advancements in the past few years. The fact that a program can isolate and accurately distinguish between hair and not hair is amazing.
It's beyond important.
This is the kind of technology that will eventually allow machines to see and interact with the real world. Self driving cars, robots performing surgeries on their own, it's amazing.
They did surgery on a grape
Well on that point I am going to disagree with you. It has a lot of potential for salons everywhere. Could you imagine if you go in to color your hair but are not sure how it would look on you? Step in front of the brilliant piece of technology and just take a look.
That's CES in a nutshell, it's all cool toys.
Reminds me of the scene from arnold's "Total Recall" where receptionist is changing her nail colours using a penlike machine. Man science has really (sort of) caught up with our previous imagination.
Came here to say this as I immediately thought about that scene. Crazy how far technology has come in just the 30 years I’ve been alive.
They do it in the 5th Element as well.
Where are my roast chickin a pellet technology
So much technologies from 80s/90s scifi that I'm still waiting on (ie Matrix- instantly uploading Kung Fu and weapon instructables to ur fekkin brain?!)
Whomever invents that instant makeup mask Leeloo uses in The Fifth Element will become a trillionaire.
Obligatory: Homer, it's stuck on "whore"!
3rd to confirm. We can now submit for a Nobel prize.
Where's the three titties at
IIRC it's the same in the Andromeda TV series (which was bloody awful), in that the first officer had nanobots in her hair that could change its colour whenever she wanted.
Exactly what I thought of. It's great.
I had the same reaction to the blonde as her too.
I felt that way about the blue hair 😍
Blond it is.
Fun fact: blond is the masculine form of the word, and blonde is the feminine form!
I always wondered the difference. Thanks for clarifying.
Is there a difference between gray and grey?
They mean the same. Gray is more common in the US. Grey is more common everywhere else.
Just a linguistic oddity.
Right?? I gasped at how prettier she looked with blond hair
From her facial expression it seems like she found her color
Looks like she did too
Brown looked best imo
The app she’s using is YouCam Makeup. It works pretty well, but not if your hair is curlier or more irregularly shaped.
Guy here with no interest in changing my hair color for real. I downloaded this app for shits and giggles. Thanks!
I just downloaded it too and am super impressed by how well it works.
Don't leave us in suspense! What turd color worked for you?
Same here. Seeing my face with eye shadow and lipstick was hilarious
Does it work on pubes?
Edit thx for the silver kind Stranger. I've dyed myself that color in your honor
It works on drapes and carpet
Just tried. Yes it does. Chest hair too. Weirdly not beard hair.
Yes. And pet hair.
Only facial pubes.
You are correct. I went to CES and used this same app, worked well on males too, but does not do beards.
Well hell. I just downloaded it to try to change my beard color. Guess I'll go delete it now. Since my head is bald, i really have no use for it.
Imagine a world where everyone has AR glasses that picks up the values that other people choose for their own hair / clothes etc.
Dude. Just. Dude that's crazy. It's like the virtual world becomes real but the barriers are gone.
We could finally all just walk around naked and let the AR glasses fill in the clothes. Guess then it would be illegal to take them off :P
Just fill in the birth date box. I always fill in something like 9/1/1913.
It's almost like reality has been... idk, augmented somehow? What do we call this new fuckery?
Great now im paying for digital fashion, this is like GTA Online all over again.
Man, this hit me like a ton of bricks looking at it.
We are literally getting so close to having real life character creation. Imagine doing this with tattoos with technology that can accurately mold to your body surface. Piercings.
Imagine walking into a salon and sliding through the options, settling, and then have everything laid out for the hairdresser as you enter for your appointment.
It won't really be all that terrifying until you get to facial reconstruction, and plastic surgery under the same idea. Then we'll have VR Avatars in IRL running around, looking like Walugi with big titties.

the day can't come soon enough
HAHA! WAHluigi numba WAHn!
Out of all the sci-fi genres that humanity could be moving towards, i'm totally down for it being cyberpunk.
I'm not really down with the corporate dystopia part, gotta say
Maybe shortly after a machine can fake a video of your proposed tattoo on your body it can give that to a tattooing machine to actually tattoo you, like Starship Troopers.
What about Bowsette with big titties?
The big breakthrough really will be when we can do biologically-perfect, reversible, fast-recovery plastic surgery. I hope eventually medicine gets advanced enough that you can pretty much just re-roll a new body whenever you feel like it. "Eh, I'm bored. Computer, schedule me an appointment at the salon tomorrow, I'm gonna try out being an Asian woman for a while"
What is her actual hair colour
I think the brown looked most realistic so maybe a shade similar to that? I imagine it would have to be quite a light shade to work this well.
That is fucking WILDLY cool.
Its really amazing that they can do real time particle effects (or whatever the actual term is) like that on hair without lag or weird graphic anomalies. That is really something
I mean it's just tinting. The hard part is figuring out what needs to be tinted.
Thats what makes it so impressive to me, it looks surprisingly natural, it looks like her hair is actually dyed, like, when she flips her hair behind her ear its still colored properly. An overlay cant do that, they must have some serious real time scanning and its fine enough to pick up individual hairs, or at least enough of them to look natural, and keep track of all that in real time as she moves her hair around.
Id love to see a video of someone with longer hair picking it up and letting it spill through her hands to see how this technology handles that much stuff at once. Either way its really awesome
I have short hair which I push up of my forehead. Any hair that spills over onto my face is not coloured. It only colours in about 1/3 of my beard as well.
It's a lot more than just tinting. It's not just changing the hue. Editing hair from light to dark is pretty simple because the black or near-black shadows hide any errors, but changing hair from dark to light is actually difficult to make convincing because of how light colours cast different shadows and how light bounces off different colours. In blonde hair you'll hardly ever find true black shadows, so if you're editing black hair (which will have true black shadows) to blonde, suddenly (in more extreme cases) you have the problem of having to either fake those areas with some clever algorithm or push the edits to limits which often looks fake too
Reminds me of Clueless and wardrobes lol.
It's hilarious to me that the natural color of blond made her say that when she started with unnatural colors.
This will save so much money to parents of teenagers. Those poor, poor bastards...
Now the NSA will know what you look like when you’re on the run and dye your hair, before you even start to run.
It's like a real life character creation screen
So were getting closer and closer to the technology from movies like The Fifth Element.
Ah I see. It's witchcraft. Burn it.
As a bald man, i’m offended. This technology discriminates against bald men. We didnt choose to be bald.
I showed this to my 10y/o sister and she said “what? it’s basically a filter” She will never understand
I feel this is an advertisement. Has been on reddit for several days and now has 36.7k upvotes in 4 hours with fewer than 1k comments. The ratios are off and it's not "new". Redditor u/These_Pea has only 2 posts, both about the same thing. Only 4 comments total, all less than 9 hours old. Something feels off.
Another technology that will go horribly wrong with black folks
Is nobody gonna mention that girl’s amazing teeth?
It’s also part of the app she’s using. She’s actually just a bag of grapes.
