Description

To run AirMouse, you must have installed: VideoCapture - http://videocapture.sourceforge.net/ PIL - http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/ Pygame - http://www.pygame.com/ Any USB Webcam or Video Input Device To use: Connect the webcam, start the program, then move a white emmisive object (such as a flashlight) in front of the camera. TO STOP THE APPLICATION, PRESS Esc. Procedure: For every frame that the camera records, AirMouse reads every pixel like a book (left to right and up to down). If a pixel is brighter than the threshold variable defined in the script, that pixel relative to the frame defines the cursor on the computer monitor. Bugs: AirMouse is choppy. Reading 76,800 pixels every 15th of a second is hard! When you move slowly down the screen, you eventually get a value error. This is an error in my pixel algorithm. I have not had much time to correct it.
