What is the best construction technique for a 4-foot tall sculpture of a human face? Answered

Must be somewhat portable (ie. not carved out of stone, not using a ton of steel as a frame). Can have less detail or be more stylized than the images shown. UPDATE: I used sheets of polystyrene which I glued together and carved. Will post link to an Instructable soon!

How to make a video with a face?

I would like to experiment with making movies that have a custom face in them, like SpaceyourFace.NASA.gov and gominimango.com/miniyou. I assume this uses flash, but if there is an easier/cheaper way to do it, I would like to check that out as well. How can this be done?

Facial Robot Controll

Facial feature detection is an interesting addition to robotics. Much of human communication is done without verbs and nouns so a robot that can pick up on visual cues from the human face will probably be leagues ahead of it's peers. I imagine that using this feature it can pick up the disconect between words and facial expression to get a understanding of sarcasm. Turing test, here we come!Face Controlling Robots

Facebook "Home" question? Answered

I've been seeing a lot recently about Facebook's "Home" software taking over Android phones, but I can't find anything about choice - will this Home thing take over all Android devices (say, as part of an update), or is it something you choose to download and install? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22025729

Tongue and mouth model.

I work at a speech training center, and I need to illustrate how to make certain sounds. I thought the best way was to use an adjustable tongue and cheek model. Doesn't have to be a real replica of a tongue, just something to illustrate the tongue and cheek positions for different sounds. Needs to be adjustable. Any ideas? Thanks.

Verifying Age Using Face Recognition?

Magazine photos fool biometric age verifier in Japan. In their never ending quest to automate every aspect of human life Japan has recently installed cigarette vending machines that will scan your face to verify your age before giving you a smoke. Kids realizing that all the robot wants is some wrinkles have learned that all they need to do is hold up a magazine image of some geezer and then they can puff away. It makes me happy to see that no matter how "advanced" technology becomes, there's often an easy overlooked loophole. Let's hope that trend continues. _BGvia: boingboing.net

Help needed! Making a face for a custom action figure Answered

I've been working on an action figure set based on my family & friends for Christmas.  I have the bodies made and they look alright.  I've got some accessories planned if I have time. I am having trouble getting the face to look decent.  I don't have a lot of sculpting experience, but I've been doing alright so far.  I don't need them to be photo-realistic or anything.  But I do want them to at least resemble the person. Do you have any ideas, tips, or websites that can help me out?

Any tips on some simple fabrication?

I'm trying to plan ahead for October, I work for a haunted hayride. Now my problem is I just purchased a full-face respirator(gas mask) from an Army/Navy Surplus, now I know why it was there. I figured I'd be able to find some accessories on the company website, unfortunately that didn't happen. They've moved on to a different design that makes getting parts for my mask a little difficult(their new design is dual exhalation/single inhalation). My mask is a single exhalation valve(bottom/middle), dual inhalation valve(top/sides) mask, I can attach two filters onto it if I need to. What I want to do is retrofit a hose so that it can screw in to the inhalation valves, where the filters go. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you might have.

Blue snowball mic and windows 7?

Alright, so today I received my new new Blue Snowball only to find it is incompatible with windows 7, or at least that's what I thought. After searching through the web for a fair few hours I found that many people had got their mic working with windows 7 yet there was no driver or firmware update available to download. I managed to find a firmware update although this stopped part way through demanding administrator rights which I gave it but it still wouldn't work :L I'm using the new macbook pro with retina display if that helps with motherboard compatibility. If anybody has a blue snowball I would really appreciate a download link to the driver you are using Thanks in advance Will

Without voiding the warranty, of course.1: Get the opera browser on dsi, if you haven't yet.2: Go to http://m.ebuddy.com on your dsi.3:Sign in (you can sign onto msn, then at the bottom of the next screen there is a button that says add more networks (or something like that)4: Now you can use all your accounts!but that takes time.
