FacePreview on Android with native libraries

Android has its own face recognition and we don’t need OpenCV to find faces on pictures or while shooting with camera. In this example I used FaceDetector to find faces on Bitmap image which I had to create from Raw data. The biggest problem of this solution is the conversion.

If your device supports other image format feel free to edit code and/or post your conversion function in comments or ask for help if needed. Second…

Smartphones can read barcodes and Google can recognize books by its barcode. I downloaded app for android called BookShelf. I created new shelf for every shelf I have and scanned all those barcodes.
