Mustachioed Nintendo Virtual Boy Gone Augmented Reality

Mustache Mayhem is built into a Nintendo Virtual Boy housing. The Virtual Boy itself was broken, and unfortunately was beyond repair. Joe removed most of the stock electronics and added a BeagleBone Black, Logitech C920 webcam, an LCD screen and some custom electronics. He kept the original audio amplifier, speakers, and controller connector. Angstrom Linux boots into Joe’s software, which uses OpenCV to detect faces and overlay mustaches.
