As a first stab at playing with the C++ library OpenFrameworks I wanted to use the OpenCV library to capture the directional movement in live video.

This simple demo shows capturing the moving blob (my hand) and it's direction on the x-axis and then applying that to the rotation of a bitmap on the screen.

The prototype is very crude and hacky but could be extended to something very useful!

More info about OpenFrameworks, the Tinker.it workshop and the source-code for the experiment can be found here: wiki.openframeworks.cc/index.php?title=OfLondon
