Python, the eyes of real world computer applications

by Ankush Sharma (speaking)

Core Python
Technical level


A talk to give you insight into how real life computer applications can be easily interfaced by using the power of image processing with Python.I will be showing how you can play games,control your computer and do other cool stuff without using any other hardware,just your gestures alone.


We are a group of three people from IIT-BHU, Varanasi whom i will be speaking.I will be showing you the building process of two computer applications we have made for this presentation talk:

  1. Touch-Free Flappy Bird - Almost all of you have known about the addictive Flappy game in android. I will be showing how to interface this game to let you control the bird by your fingers itself. I will be first showing how to build the game by using Pygame and then how to interface it by using SimpleCV.

  2. Virtual User - Through this, I will be showing how to perform clicks,scrolls,mouse movements on your pc without using any hardware; just by your fingers alone.

The aim of the talk is to present a model which has endless applications in real life; like automated CCTv surveillance, self-capable projectors(no need of having laptop with projector for working) and much more.
The motto of the talk is: Python can make comfort in human life!!
