My Computer Found it's BellyButton

Yeah, it doesn't look like much... but I'm excited.  I've been meaning to do this a while, just didn't have the time.  I'll be doing a variety of tests to see how it preforms.  It has several "Match" algorithms to play with (CV_TM_CCOEFF_NORMED, CV_TM_SQDIFF, etc) - and I think there are several normalization routines.

This match algorithm seems fairly fast @ 120 ms - Haar Face Detection takes longer...

The template used is this 


 and I manually created it by cropping a piece out with gimp.

The next step is to “select” the object of interest out using the mouse through the screen.

The next step after that would be dynamically/programmatically select an area of interest and store it.

End goal would be to have something which works like these 2 videos

Does this mean…

that you no longer need to draw smiley faces around your power sockets?
