If you haven't yet tapped into the (well by now it's a) phenomena that is Kutiman's "Thru You" project - don't walk, run and do it now.
I'm a long time fan of Kutiman's work, his last CD ("Kutiman") is playing repeatedly in my company-leased car. And I have been watching closely to hear some of his new beats.
I must say he totally surprised me. The music is awesome, but this was to be expected. He surprised me beacuse he single handedly create a new concept - Social Music. What he did was a natural development of music in the Web 2.0 spirit - use the enourmous amount of "data" laying around freely on the internet, and bring it together to create something new.
Anyway, enjoy his work, it's truly aspiring.
As my search for the best platform to roll-out my new face detection concept continues, I decided to give ol' Qt framework a go.
I like Qt. It's cross-platform, a clear a nice API, straightforward, and remindes me somewhat of Apple's Cocoa.
My intention is to get some serious face detection going on mobile devices. So that means either the iPhone, which so far did a crummy job performance-wise, or some other mobile device, preferably linux-based.
This led me to the decision to go with Qt. I believe you can get it to work on any linux-ish platform (limo, moblin, android), and since Nokia baught Trolltech - it's gonna work on Nokia phones soon, awesome!
Lets get to the details, shall we?
