webcam IR mouse control - 1.1

This uses an IR LED to move the mouse. The idea came from Johnny Lee.

To work you will need to place a filter over the lens of the webcam. The filter is nothing more than the black ends of film negatives. I used three layers of the negatives.


I added a pygame window to display what the webcam was seeing. Came in handy. I'm sure it could be done better and more efficiently but I'm still a new comer.
