Inspiration

Avatar the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.

What it does

It takes a video feed from your webcam and shows you video that looks like you are firebending.

How we built it

We used Java and JavaCV. After reading from the webcam, we just worked with the pixels in a BufferedImage.

Challenges we ran into

Figuring out how to detect a human in an image. Simulating realistic looking fire.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Drawing a decent outline around the human.

What we learned

Image processing is extremely difficult, but really interesting.

What's next for Firebending

More accurate vertices on the human, and more accurate looking fire.
