Telerik shows the power of Kendo UI and HTML5 at Google I/O
| Tuesday, July 03, 2012
Our good friends at Telerik were invited to show off Kendo UI in the exclusive Google Developer Sandbox at Google I/O 2012. At Falafel Software, we were especially excited about one of Telerik’s demonstrations; a web-based photo booth application that leverages Kendo UI and new cutting edge HTML5 features available in Google’s updated Chrome browser, codenamed “Canary”. This web application uses the Media Source API and other early stage HTML5 elements to access your webcam, analyze a constant stream of video data to detect and track multiple faces, overlay a number of props and effects (think funhouse mirrors, glasses, mustaches etc), and then scale the props as your face approaches the camera.
You would expect this kind of live stream analysis to be computationally intensive, but this demonstration is running smoothly in a web browser! With this demonstration it is quite clear that both Kendo UI and Google are ahead of the curve when it comes to HTML5 development.
We love Kendo UI and we were honored that Telerik asked us to collaborate on this project; not only because of the technical challenge, but because it was just a lot of fun to play with:
