Abdullah’s Robot

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
    1. Concept
    2. Code
  • Build a face recognition system
  • Build 3D object position tracker
  • Build 3D interactive character
  • Bring the character into real world
  • Give it some actions!
