Computer Vision with OpenCV 3 and Qt5, Now Available for Preorder

It is one thing to become an author, but it is totally another level of joy, to be published by my most favorite publisher in the computer science industry. So, it is with great pleasure that today I can announce that my upcoming book about OpenCV and Qt is available for preordering on Amazon, and also from PacktPub. It’s titled “Computer Vision with OpenCV 3 and Qt5”, and it aims to teach both computer vision and application development for developers who are familiar with C++ (on an intermediate level), but want to learn about powerful cross-platform frameworks such as Qt and OpenCV with hands-on examples and clear instructions. The book is in its final stages of completion, so I’m also excited to announce that our goal is to make it available by the beginning of 2018 and we are working hard to make it happen. Here are the links to preorder:

The universe said: I do not have any power over your whirling [,why?]

I answered: It is such a “Point” that made me a compass.

Download Template Project – Qt for Android (with OpenCV)

I start Qt for Android projects all the time and setting up all the required folders and including libraries can take some time, assuming that I don’t make any mistakes during the initialization of the project. Previously I had posted this about how to add OpenCV libraries to your Qt for Android project but it proved to be not enough and I also receive questions about how to create a correct project with OpenCV all the time.

CamStylus version 0.9.1 released!

Today I released the first official version of CamStylus program. It is a free program (currently only for Windows) which allows interaction with your PC using your webcam. It is still at the very early stages of development so keep your expectations real. I am going to update this program more and more whenever I get some spare time to make it more easier to use.

Please check out this project’s website for more information.

I created and rendered this in Blender. There are very useful tutorials about how to create similar images. Just search Google for “Blender Cloth Simulation” and start.
