I started playing around a little more with my Webcam and extended my previous motion detection example – this time to control the camera of a virtual 3-D space from motion detected in the user’s Webcam. It detects motion area and general direction, albeit with dubious accuracy, but you get the idea.
Due to popular demand, I’ve posted the source code for you lot to play with. It contains the FlashDevelop project file (it’s compiled with the Flex 3 SDK) and my cut-down 3-D engine, Pants3D 🙂
After getting my Wii remote hooked up with the WiiFlash Server, I knocked up this quick Flash demo which draws the blobs of infrared light the Wii remote detects (it can track up to 4 blobs at once), just like the Wii console’s sensitivity setting dialog does. I just gave each blob a different colour and clear the graphics on pressing the ‘A’ button.
