A demonstration of a webcam gesture-based game like Pong(R). Note that scoring and sound effects have been left uncoded to attract Python developers to download and modify the code from and to join the Google group for the Open Allure project. Other project videos are available at -- Enjoy!

Cool... but I would have been interested in the technical details. Will check out the code.

can be good for handicapped persons!

Way cool. I just decided to start a similar project, and did a google search to see how much open source code I'll be able to use for it. Yours was one of the first projects to come up. Thanks in advance for however much of your code I use!

Hi John, I'm late commenting on this video - I watched it ages back. Nice job, I'm going to have a go with the demo. I was playing with openCV recently for my Headroid1 face-tracking robot:



somplesmente fantastico

I just wasnt sure of the capabilities of this program you all feed me and I ll feed you it will be like this nest of alien feeding untill we are surrounded in a plasma of some sort and from there evolution is orbical. (orbs energy spheres)

You are the best more more more! I love this site.

very cool - played around with this sort of thing back in the day - we'd have been bowled over to think a Python program could handle this in real time.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for John
