Hi jason and other community memebrs this is my second proposal for gsoc on beagle board project
Air Hockey game using Projector + Kinect + BBB
Games are great!
They are fun, inspiring and hocking elements, me myself was drawn into engineering due to a simple set of micanoJ. I want to traverse this feeling to another child using the new available layer of technology of embedded computers.
I intend to make a project similar to this one. (# was my own idea but during my search found that it was implemented L )
But lucky me it is written in Tex/Latex and not very good in terms of performance (hats up for creators).
So my vision for this project is to have a complete Open source Mixed Reality engine which can in real time build a complete perception of the environment and build another layer of information on top of it.
So the core of the project is the engine not the app, as I don’t intend to stop at air hockey imagine having a Chess board where you and your friends are the chess pieces or having a real life combat game in your office.
