The current Dart Game software in openframeworks.

list of features and outstanding things after the jump.


  • Gravitational Emergent Behavior (based on Steadman Particle Drawing Tool)
  • Infrared Computer Vision Detection (from live & recorded video)
  • Quad Warping of incoming video for camera/projection alignment
  • Vector Field levels generated from Grayscale Images
  • Win-state detection

Outstanding things to do include:

  • Integration of Motion History Dart detection
  • Two-way serial communication with the dartbox prototype.
  • Weighting of Motion History Detection with Piezo Vibration Sensor
  • Integration of Craig Reynolds-style flocking algorithm (ofw demo)
  • A million other things I can’t think of at the moment
