Joe Grand
Making Magical Mustaches with Mustache Mayhem

World peace begins with mustaches. Tom Selleck, Burt Reynolds, Salvador Dali, Frank Zappa, Freddy Mercury, and Hulk Hogan have all harnessed the power of the mustache. It's time the rest of the world joined their ranks.

Mustache Mayhem is a hardware hack, a video game, and an interactive art piece rolled into one. Based on the short-lived Nintendo Virtual Boy video game console and retro-fitted with a BeagleBone Black Linux computer, the project provides a singular, entertaining goal: Overlay virtual mustaches onto real-world faces for points. In this presentation, Joe details the trials and tribulations behind creating his most ridiculous oeuvre yet.

Joe Grand (@joegrand), also known as Kingpin, is a computer engineer, hardware hacker, product designer, teacher, advisor, runner, daddy, honorary doctor, TV host, member of L0pht Heavy Industries, and the proprietor of Grand Idea Studio (grandideastudio.com).
