3D pointing and drawing

leave a comment »

This is a prototype for pointing and drawing in a 3D space. I think this could be helpful for annotating and marking 3D body scans.

I used a simple color tracker to detect the pink top of the pen. 1 webcam is tracking x and y position, the 2. webcam is tracking the z position of the pink-pen-top. But you could also imagine this working with tracking a finger or even multiple fingers.

I think it is a very interesting to make these 3D interface explorations… but how reasonable are they for the radiologists work? At this stage of the 3D concepts I still see a lot of problems.
