What it does

You can point your phone's camera at a checkers board and it will show you all of the legal moves and mark the best one.

How we built it

We used Android studio to develop an Android app that streams camera captures to a python server that handles

Challenges we ran into

Detection of the orientation of the checkers board and the location of the pieces.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We used markers to provide us easy to detect reference points which we used to infer the orientation of the board.

What we learned

  • Android Camera API
  • Computer Vision never works as robust as you think it will.

What's next for Augmented Checkers

  • Better graphics and UI
  • Other games
