Gamebody, a full-body game controller

Semaphore Games is a unique full-body game controller that uses OpenCV and MediaPipe’s Pose detection to detect body landmarks in real-time. This technology calculates relative differences to determine specific positions and translates them into commands sent via keyboard. To get the best experience, you’ll need a well-lit space with a plain background and the ability to stand far enough away from the camera to fit multiple bodies with extended limbs. The controller recognizes various motions such as arm extensions, leg raises, covering the mouth, crossing the arms, jumping, and squatting, which are mapped to customizable key combinations. This project offers a new and innovative way to interact with games using your body movements.
