PySight post halloween entertainment

[John] sent in this setup that he hacked together for Halloween. He used a MacBook Pro with built in camera, a projector, a bed sheet, a kid friendly laser pointer and a hacked together combination of PySight and PyGame. The result was a fairly easy game of shoot Marshie. Nice!

  7. alex mccown,

    If this gets accepted for presentation at PyCon I’m going to make a Linux port that should work with any old web cam. As for the projector, they’ve got $400 projectors at now, I’m guessing that by Halloween next year they’ll have $250 projectors if you look hard enough.

    The projectors were online only for $399. I believe that they are back ordered now. But you can get the same projector other places for $499 with a $100 rebate.

    The exact model is the ViewSonic PJ503D.
