LaserSketch: Doodling with lasers!


Wouldn’t it be great if we could draw things on a computer without using a mouse? I really liked this idea, so I created a program which draws things by tracking the movements of a laser dot using a webcam. I didn’t have a whole lot of time for this since school stuff is keeping me slightly busy. Therefore, I just modified Andrew Kirillov’s motion detection code into a laser tracker. I also realized that his image acquisition code was a bit faster than mine. So far, I've been able to achieve upto 23 fps with this code. Well, I still have to work on improving this program. I might also modify it so that it allows me to control a mouse pointer with a laser beam. :)

Merry Christmas!

Hey ashishrd you have some great stuff going, I myself aren't very good with C++ or any software development for that matter, but never the less this is one crazy thing you are doing, can u send me a copy of the finished compiled program at dapaperclip@gmail.com if it is not too much trouble. I also have a great idea for a UI sorta like a mouse but more or less more fun to use and only needs a webcam and if u can help me with the software, that be cool too.

Thanks again...
