I got inspired from the movie Mr. India which is very famous and popular Bollywood movie released in the year of 1987. Where the character named Mr. India gets invisible by wearing a watch and is only visible in red light.
What it does
In this magical project one can get invisible irrespective of whichever colored cloth he or she is wearing and again can get visible in front of the camera by just pressing a key. Also in this project you can play some funky beats by just moving your hands in the air.
How we built it
For programming language we have used python and also used various libraries of python like runpy, speech recognition, pyautogui, imutils, OpenCV, etc.
Challenges we ran into
There were some difficulties we faced while making the whole body invisible as there were some disturbances appearing when we were not in front of the camera. Even when we were playing drums with colors similar to red it was detecting them as red color which shouldn't happen . So we overcome that problem also.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
For getting invisible we don't need any color of cloak and all . You can just get invisible by the required key on the keyboard. Now for playing drums also you don't need to touch your tablet or laptop screen, by using red and blue color stick you can play the drums in the air. It is menu driven.
What we learned
I learnt a lot of things like problem solving when there are coding related problems and also how to automate interactions with other applications like onemotion.com which I have used to play the beats in the air.
What's next for TRICKED OUT !
For the invisible magic trick we would make the person invisible but his or her cloths will be visible. For play beats in the air we are planning to implement it with piano or xylophone.
