This uses the camera access from the browser and face recognition (in JS?

This uses the camera access from the browser and face recognition (in JS? I need to look at that) to change the HTML font size based on how close you are to the screen.

The technology is cool but the idea is terrible. If I move my head toward the screen, it’s probably because I’m having trouble reading the text so don’t make it smaller!!! 🙂

Update: quite impressive. 228 Kb of minified JS for the face tracker via https://github.com/auduno/headtrackr/

What if the distance between your face and the screen determined how big the font was? Oh wait! Marko Dugonjić just built that!
