    How about you just worry about learning how to program in C first.

    Yes. I'm moving this to Tech Board because I anticipate discussion of the technology rather than anything to do with C programming per se.

    I enjoy TED and might check this out sometime, but I think this should fall in the "General Discussions" category.

    EDIT: Too late

    I have implemented a truly marvelous program for this, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

    What exactly do you mean by "how"? If you have any visions of grandeur of implementing such a system yourself, take AndrewHunter's advice about learning how to program first.

    @ Andrew - I read that whole thing yesterday and didn't make the connection here that you just did. Sadly on track, it would seem.

    I was hoping more something like: "Really, we are joking folks! This is pretty stupid if you come to think of it. What we did here is another motion sensing device. Forget all that nonsense about objects and real life. That's my open source marketing department talk."
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    "Open source marketing" is something of an oxymoron, don't you think?

    But yes, it is considerably less impressive than he makes it seem... basically it it is a vision sensor tied to a projector... interresting, but hardly something anyone needs in day to day computing... I, for one, am not about to walk around with a bunch of crap strapped to my body just so I can do a task that is easily done on a smartphone I can stick in my pocket.

    Not all of us want to be inserparably tied to --hence: dependent upon-- computers.

    @Vxyz ... "I know how to do the Hello World program. So now I want to write a multitasking vision system with spacial marker sensing and 3 dimensional input/output capability."

    Yes. A real one.
