Kids Moving Things on Screen with a Web Cam and Flash

Kids Gesturing for Camera Interaction

There was a request to use Ostrich for helping sooth kids with trauma – sound like a good cause.  We put together a simple package to help the designer get under way.  It shows two MovieClips on stage that trigger camera motion.  This can be as many clips as you want.  You could then animate the clip, play a sound, etc.

(still need to download Ostrich at right and have the files in the com directory installed in a folder in your Flash class path)

It becomes more tricky to have the clips move location – you would need to adjust the code to dispose of the MotionCursor object for the clip that has changed position and then make a new MotionCursor for it.  Certainly possible but tricky.
