I am looking for a fun project for entertaining my son. I have always wanted to make a simple interactive program for him to play with. I thought it would be a good motivation for him to love studying. One thing that comes to my mind is to create a simple tracker program which will automatically track his position where it will react whenever he moves. I am thinking maybe we can create a simple character which will follow him wherever he goes.
I will divide this project into several stages. To be honest, I don’t have a complete plan for what I will do. However, I have a rough plan as follows:
- Build a head/face detection system
- Build a face recognition system
- Build 3D object position tracker
- Build 3D interactive character
- Bring the character into real world
- Give it some actions!
