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.
