Computer Vision meets Fish Tank

One day I got curious… what if I programmed my computer to track the fish swimming in my fish tank? That led me to tinkering with an open source software library called OpenCV. I fiddled around with the settings, tried a few things, and saved the output as a video, seen below. There’s a lot of research in computer science around object recognition and identification … this mini-project was just an attempt to have some fun poking around with some “older” computer vision technologies. Let me know what you think!
