This is a little project I've been playing with while I've been sick, 2 days that is... The system is based upon the MultiTouch Technology.

HARDWARE
1. Cardboardbox
2. Tape
3. Webcam (I used Eyetoy Namtoi v2.)
4. Computer running Windows
5. Fantasy
---------------------------------
EXPLAINED
I startd off by installing the Eyetoy drivers, this makes me able to use the Playstation 2 camera used in the first generation of EyeToy. The camera has 2 megapixels, I advice you to not use a camera below 2 megapixels.

When the driver for the camera was installed I got my cardboardbox ready and cut a little hole in it so that I could fit my USB cable in it. By USB cable I mean the cable going from the Eyetoy camera to the computer.

Then I taped on some paper and transperant plastic bags on top. This would create the shadow effect for the Eyetoy camera.

All I needed to do now was to install the Windows Mouse driver so that my computer would pick up the coordinates from the camera and know where to direct the mouse on the screen.
