"A pointing device controlled by webcam object detection and tracking"

For our ECE 4760 final project, we designed and built a pointing device with webcam-color-tracking based movement control.  Our implementation allows the user to wear a set of finger-sleeves complete with buttons for clicking and scrolling and a red LED for color-tracking cursor control to interface with a computer as a normal mouse would.  Users have the freedom to control their computer’s cursor movements and functions simply by moving a hand in the air without the need for a desk.
