Smart Motion Ring(previous version)--- www.instructables.com/id/Smart-Motion-Ring/
Step 1: Materials
2. One or two infrared L.E.Ds
3. A push button switch
4. Small button cells
5. Some film sheets
6. Metal pipe (1/2" will be fine.)
7. Electrical tape
9. Some Spray paint
10. Some Sand paper or metal file
11. Soldering kit
12. M-Seal or any other sealing adhesive. You can also use modeling clay but remember you have to make it water proof.
13. Flat shoelaces
Step 2: Blue Print
Step 3: Diffuse the L.E.D
Step 4: The Ring (Body)
See the image.....
Its all done now just take the insulation tape and wrap as tightly you can in the mechanism.
Bend the whole thing around your finger to give it a shape and then cover the whole thing with m-seal.
Step 5: Color
I am leaving it as it is because after drying, m-seal becomes black.....
Step 6: The IR Filter
To make it, follow the images.
If you are using an external usb webcam follow this tutorial----- www.instructables.com/id/Infrared-Webcam/
Step 7: Software and Calibration
It is not made up for this purpose but it will work perfectly.
This is a program used for diy multitouch tables.
This software can help you use the left click function on your ring all you have to do for clicking is just leave the switch when it was pushed and then again push it without any lag.
To enable the mouse output download a program called touch lib and have fun.
Step 8: Frequently Asked Questions
A1. Diffusion is a process to make the l.e.d brighter than before. We only need to scatter the light in all directions inside the l.e.d
Q2. What is an ir filter?
A2. An ir filter is used so that the camera it is used on, only catches infrared light.
Q3. Why using infra red L.E.D?
A3. We are using ir led so that the camera do not get any disturbance during tracking.
