Simple game using Tracking Tools

Post by neill_solow » Sun Jul 05, 2009 6:14 am

Hi,

I had an idea to experiment with MoCap equipment and make simple game for entertainment. Indeed, opportunities may be obtained from the same device as a Nintendo Wii console. I have built a game-like range of those that were at the Dendy console, coming complete with a pistol. The challenge to shoot a mouse in the monitor on a red square (the enemies) and do not shoot on the green (the hostages). For this game it was enough a three cameras and two rigid bodies(the gun and monitor).
The gameplay itself is in target the hand to the screen and click the mouse button as a shooting. Sight is the result of projecting the position of the hand rigid body on the monitor and displayed as a red dot. On the video it is quite clearly visible.

Topic on my blog - neill3d.com

In future, It�s posible to build the functionality to play together and not in the shooting range, as for example in boxing or tennis. I�m interesting, anybody experimented similarly with MoCap equipment?

Hello:

Thanks for taking the time to post this. We watched the video and think it is a good example of how to use the Tools for interactivity.

It looks like you have a previous version of either the PointCloud or RigidBody software. You can upgrade to the Tracking Tools for free if you had RigidBody, and for a small fee if you had PointCloud, just FYI.

I have used Tracking Tools 2.0 beta 1 in the video capture (I have already updated my RigidBody software)
