From Music Hack Day

A program that looks at you through your web cam and plays a sound when you open your mouth. It can tell what shape you're making and how high your mouth is on the screen as synthesis parameters.
Here's a video of the hack in action: http://vimeo.com/14964863

To get it to work you may have to press spacebar to enable the GUI, then adjust the threshold slider until it starts working.
Press 1, 2, 3 or 4 to try different sounds - I got a cat, a synth, birdsong and buddhist monks. Open the data/patches folder to reveal the pd patches that drive the audio.
