In the recent years, face detection technologies have been widely used by artists to create digital art. Face detection provides new forms of interaction, and allows digital artefacts to detect the presence of human beings, through video capture and facial detection, in real-time. In this paper we explore the algorithm proposed by Paul Viola and Mi...

Virtual reality (VR) has been a prominent idea for exploring new worlds beyond the physical, and in recent decades, it has evolved in many aspects. The notion of immersion and the sense of presence in VR gained new definitions as technological advances took place. However, even today, we can question whether the degrees of immersion achieved throug...
