Thanks to KEGGERS, who made a post in “general discusions”, i got directed to Atlasgloves.org. These guys use lit ping-pong balls to be detected. These are tracked in Processing itself due to the java.awt.Robot library, already in the processing libraries. I thought i could make this happen with IR fingered blobs as well. And guess what, it does.
The app steers the mouse and some small gesturing library is written in the sketch as well for zooming, panning and rotating, even tilting. This app was especialy written to control google earth. Read the website, forums on their website for trouble shooting!
It works quiet well!
Be sure to download the developpers pack, not the application, some files are missing there. Also you have to correct a small mistake (framerate instead of frameRate).
Have fun with it!
Here some FLV video from their site
