And So It Begins!

Prototype: Done! We made a mini-touch screen yesterday, and it turned out perfectly. Pictures and videos included πŸ˜€

This is all we used. Literally. A cardboard box, a webcam, 2 sheets of paper, and a frame for a certificate that you got when you were in elementary school.

Taped up the corners of the cardboard box.

Put webcam inside box.

Another webcam inside box picture.

Taped the paper to the glass of the certificate frame, put the glass back in, and taped to the top of the box.

And our result?


The left hand side is the shadow of our hands on the glass. The right hand shows where the points of touch are recognized. If Kareem wouldn’t have been a pansy, we could have made his laptop touch screen with stuff laying just around the house πŸ™‚

Easy peezy lemon squeezy haha!

  1. Hopefully the actual build has even better results! That 7-10 fps on that webcam was crazily slow!
