ODROID Magazine April Issue Available Now! (OpenCV)

Unread post by robroy » Sun Apr 10, 2016 3:14 pm

Hardkernel is proud to announce that the ODROID Magazine for April 2016 is now available!

OpenCV is a popular software application that can be used in cooperation with a digital camera in order to analyze visual input and make decisions based on what the computer interprets from the video image. Hardkernel recently released the oCAM module, which is an inexpensive way to create a visual processing system that responds to its environment. This month, DongHyun Yoo demonstrates a simple OpenCV application that can be used for object tracking with an ODROID-XU4.

Several forum users recently designed retro gaming consoles built around ODROIDs in order to recreate their first gaming experiences, and have shared the designs with the community. We also present some great games, including Awkaster, a terminal-based 3D first-person shooter, Cut the Rope 2, where you solve puzzles in order to feed candy to a cute monster, Re-Volt, a fun racing game, and XMage, a client/server package for Magic: The Gathering. Venkat continues his technical series with a multiscope project, and Adrian shows us how to perform network penetration testing using Kismet.

I am not sure I understood what in this issue was supposed to be connected to Augmented reality.
Was it the object tracking article? I was truly interested in HUD systems for cars.

Yes, the object tracking article with the superimposed character was the inspiration for the cover. I apologize if the artwork was misleading and implied that we were discussing a vehicle HUD.

However, given your interest in the topic, what do you think it would take in terms of hardware and software to make a HUD? It seems that it might require a small projector, what do you think?

If you're interested in pursuing it, we'll send you a nice hardware gift for documenting and publishing the details of your project.

FYI I am purchasing components to make this happen. It doesn't involve a projector though because it doesn't need one.
I will let you know how it turns out.
