What it does
Ballpoint is the Kinect for the common man. Ever dreamed of delving into the world of motion-based games without also going into debt? Ballpoint has you covered.
To use Ballpoint, simply build your very own Ballpoint Pen using an orange ping pong ball, and attach any stick onto it! Video Demo. Unfortunately, that may set you back about 50 cents :( Then, proceed to download and install our Ballpoint application on your PC.
How we built it
Our backend tracking system uses tracking.js to detect the location and size of the ball on the webcam capture feed, and uses that information to determine the 3D coordinates of the ball with respect to the webcam. It then uses Electron to interact with RobotJS to handle mouse and keyboard actions.
