Code for Face Dectection

Mr. Wizard Rating - 10
Simple yes but it I can see how this project would have a lot of future applications and the face detection only needs about 3 steps

  1. Start the face detection algorithm
  2. If the face is detected, go to the next line of code
  3. Execute a print statement.

Data is printed when the face is detected
