Augmented Reality using Kinect
In this Augmented Reality using Kinect tutorial position and orientation of the head is tracked. According to position and orientation information 3D skull model, 3D iron man helmet, etc. can be added on top of human head.
Processing programming language was used in this project.
Processing is a flexible software sketchbook and a language for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts. Since 2001, Processing has promoted software literacy within the visual arts and visual literacy within technology. There are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning and prototyping.
