Calling it 'realtime face substitution' Arturo Castro's program allows people to transfer features from one face to another - although the results are somewhat unusual, reports the Daily Mail.

Castro created the application with the help of Facetracker and the Facetracker Library technology.

Castro used the Facetracker API to build the tracking program that essentially stretches images of other people's faces to fit his own.

He was inspired to produce the video after thinking about identity theft and what would happen if a face could be grabbed and put on someone else.
