Hi, I’ve started using Processing for an interactive artwork i’m working on.
I’m looking for the best/easiest way to solve the following issue:
Set a boolean variable to true, if I take a hold of THIS POSE in front of my webcam (for like 2/3 secs)
The background should be no problem since i’m using a large projection screen behind me, so i can project a solid green color if that makes it easier.
I’ve brainstormed for several ideas to tackle this issue, but realizing them into code is just too hard for me:
I could use OpenCV MarkerDetection (detects certain pictograms with the webcam) and project 3 pictograms on the screen with dedicated positions. If I block the view of these 3 with my head and hands, the boolean will be set to true.
I know that this method isn’t very accurate since it doesn’t recognise a real human body in view, but in my case it’s already sufficient.
So using a couple of indication points aligned to the pose I will make, can be okay too.
At least, I don’t know if there’s any easier&more efficient way than that.
Anyway, every little bit of help is appreciated.
Thanks by advance!
(and sorry by advance cause i didn’t know whether to post this under coding questions or project guidance)
