Using a webcam, projector, and a whiteboard, engineers at Technion, the Israel Institute of Technology, showed how to create a pinball game where the user draws the ramps, places computer generated flippers and bumpers, as well as adding real obstacles to create the pinball game. Use the techniques discussed in my book, CUDA Application Design and Development and working source code to implement your own augmented reality game using the webcam demo and Sobel Edge detection. Users can also use the NVIDIA computer vision libraries, opencv and many other existing opensource projects. Note: The flippers are controlled by the users hands.
The whiteboard simplifies the software. Once mastered, one can start looking into more complex projects like Microsoft’s Roomalive!
