So, I plugged in my recently acquired endoscopic camera to see what it might look like through the omni lens. Of course, I didn’t expect it to work out too well because of the LED light which would flood the lens.
I installed VS2012 (doesn’t like my Windows 7 apparently but seems to run anyoldway).
So, poked around the examples from OpenFramework and found one that was a simple frame grabber. I had to modify it to point at my camera (there is another pesky camera definition on my system which I think was an old clapped out USB camera I tried running that crashed the computer – looks like it didn’t install properly, as usual).
Anyway, the result is not earth shattering:
BUT this framework works on linux, windows and android so I can design and implement on my windows box before porting to either of android device or beaglebone. Pretty neat.
First I will take the OSX example of bloggie unwrapping to work it towards a windows visual bumper.
