Build your own motion tracking system

Stewart Hamilton-Arrandale shows how to get game with a webcam and Flash

Most laptops and computers nowadays have a webcam, so in this tutorial we are going to look at utilising Flash to create a simple motion tracking system.

The uses for such a system vary, but here we will be looking at using the webcam to control a simple Flash game via moving our arms left to right.

This could also be used for tracking elements in a video in Flash, and maybe even adding speech bubbles to track people in the video.
