Google has released a fun AI (artificial intelligence) experiment called ‘Move Mirror’ on Thursday that matches your pose from more than 80,000 images of others making that same pose. It shows those images next to you in real time as you move around, and you can even make a GIF of your poses.
“Months ago, we prototyped a fun experiment called Move Mirror that lets you explore images in your browser, just by moving around. The experiment creates a unique, flipbook-like experience that follows your moves and reflects them with images of all kinds of human movement – from sports and dance to martial arts, acting, and beyond,” Google said in blog post on Medium.
Google has made a website “experiments.withgoogle.com” to try out Move Mirror. When you visit the website, and it will ask you to allow access your computer’s camera to get started.
Move Mirror is based on Google’s another experiment called PoseNet which is an open-source tool that allows any web developer to play with body-based interactions, and entirely within the browser without any special camera or C++/Python skills.
Google has additionally assured that you need not to worry about what’s happening with your image in Move Mirror, as it is not being stored or sent to a server. Google says that Move Mirror is powered by TensorFlow.js, and all of the pose tracking is done directly through your web browser.
“With Move Mirror, we’re showing how computer vision techniques like pose estimation can be available to anyone with a computer and a webcam,” added blog post.
