I don't have a webcam, so I didn't get to try this out.
This website uses your computers camera to detect your arm movements then transfer them into the movements of a bird that you can then manipulate to
make the bird fly.
4 The Birdz
For The Birdz is a motion tracking installation, where you can fly a virtual bird by real body movements. The user is standing in front of the camera
and the computer analyzes the movements in the image and will filter out the positions of the users hands. The positions are translated to a virtual
3D bird, which is projected in front of the user. By moving the hands in the user can control the wings of the bird and start to fly.
If anybody tries it, please post back on if it was good or bad.
