    AutoIT Script - Webcam MouseGrid

    A tracking system that uses your webcam and colors in order to move your mouse around a grid.

    This script is almost identical to the Movement Tracker project, however it only supports one color to track. Simply, it breaks the image from your webcam up into sections. It displays what section the tracked object is currently in when moved into a region. Its a simple game controller concept, showing that events can be triggered when the object tracked moves into a specific section.

    AutoIt Script - Webcam Movement Tracker (AKA Motion Pong)

    An old project that would allow the user to play pong using their webcam.

    This is the most advanced script I have yet coded, and is the main work of my AutoIT creations. This script, when complete, will allow two players to play pong through their webcam by selecting two different colors. The program will then designate the selected colors as paddles, causing the ball to bounce when touching them. Currently, it allows two players to select colors and tracks them on screen, however no gameplay has been intergrated.
