Jaught's name comes from the two words, "jot" and "taught". This web application allows teachers to quickly jot notes and teach their students.
What it does
Use your finger to take notes or teach a lesson on a virtual whiteboard. Jaught includes functionality for quick and sleek actions through hand gestures. For instance, swipe your hand to the left with three fingers and the whiteboard will clear. Or swipe down with four fingers to share the notes with your students.
How I built it
Python & OpenCV
Challenges I ran into
Camera quality of integrated webcam is poor & grainy. Light exposure in frame varies and image thresholding can be inconsistent.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Hand & finger tracking is fairly accurate.
What I learned
More OpenCV functions
What's next for Jaught
Complete web application interface, integrated classroom features, neural network outlets and more data for better accuracy
