My project lets you try on virtual pairs of sunglasses or masks. To achieve this I utilized python, Dlib, OpenCV, Scipy, and Numpy. The pipeline involves opening a live webcam feed, detecting keypoints on faces in the feed, warping a png image of sunglasses to match the face, rotating the png with face movements, and blending the two images together so they look like one real image.

Some Python programmers like to think of their language as flawless. I personally know some Python programmers claiming that Python is superior to other languages in its clean design and unmatched elegance. This however isn’t true. Python has at least as many deep and fundamental flaws as most other languages, despite parts of its community claiming something different.

What changed in my reasoning? First of all, I’m working on other problems. Whereas I used to do a lot of work that was very easy to map to numpy operations (which are fast as they use compiled code), now I write a lot of code which is not straight numerics. And, then, if I have to write it in standard Python, it is slow as molasses. I don’t mean slower in the sense of “wait a couple of seconds”, I mean “wait several hours instead of 2 minutes.”
