Check a few posts back. I like to call it the hamster ball technique :)
you got it! that plus a very complex control system
Coming from Fort Collins I was not a fan of Boulder at all (big college rivalry). I still think CU sucks but it’s definitely a killer spot for tech startups! ;)
I was curious about using IR after I saw your IR/projector demo in the SparkFun building. I haven’t had time to look into it though. I wonder how dark it would have to be before a cell phone camera would pick it up?
Color should be fairly easy. First it could scan the image to see which color is least present in the surroundings. Then it would light up the ball LEDs either red, green, or blue. Finally it would use simple blob tracking to find the ball and overlay whatever you wanted on top of it. A pack man?
No public wish lists :(
