The aim of this exercise was to use computer vision. Computer vision is a complete field in itself. It has the power to take information from images or videos by complex methods of pixel analysis and etc. It has produced works ranging from art like display to automated robots. The xbox kinetic is an application of computer vision.

So my idea was to use computer vision to draw and trace the motion of a wheels on a canvas. I was already doing an exercise in fabrication class, to use laser cutter and make various wheels, and then look at their motion. So my intention was to capture the motion of these wheels and draw it by using a computer vision sketch in processing . Below are few ideas that i sketched to see how the drawing should look like.

Lucky i come across an sketch in open processing (link) that tracks a specific selected color from camera input.

Now all i needed to do is to modify the code so that it tracks and it draws at the same time and does it according to required display.
