Hi guys this is my project for my Msc in Mobile Computation.
I’d like to share with you, for now, the first video I have made. It will show a little bit of what I’ve done for now =)

I’ve written all the application from zero reusing only the Opencv framework for acquiring frames from webcam.
The algorithms for detection and tracking have been also written by me, I’ve got 5 different algorithms to made some comparisons and evaluation.

If you want to learn more please notify me =)

Hope you like it and give me some feedback.

Hey man,
I was suggesting in the chat box that you place the laptop off to the side of the projection screen.  I think that is how most people doing the wiimote setups do it.  Thus when you draw you get better tracking because your hand or the pen isn’t blocking the LED at any time.

The application is also working in PC and linux =) cause I use a QT method to move mouse.. the only thing that I need to do is to send the mouse event for each OS, for now I only coded for the MAC.

I will notice everyone here when I will put the source online..  =)

Keep on giving me some advice… =)
