OpenCV is a popular software application that can be used in cooperation with a digital camera in order to analyze visual input and make decisions based on what the computer interprets from the video image. Hardkernel recently released the oCAM module, which is an inexpensive way to create a visual processing system that responds to its environment. This month, DongHyun Yoo demonstrates a simple OpenCV application that can be used for object tracking with an ODROID-XU4.
Several forum users recently designed retro gaming consoles built around ODROIDs in order to recreate their first gaming experiences, and have shared the designs with the community. We also present some great games, including Awkaster, a terminal-based 3D first-person shooter, Cut the Rope 2, where you solve puzzles in order to feed candy to a cute monster, Re-Volt, a fun racing game, and XMage, a client/server package for Magic: The Gathering. Venkat continues his technical series with a multiscope project, and Adrian shows us how to perform network penetration testing using Kismet.
