Title:
IMAGE PROCESSING APPARATUS, METHOD, AND PROGRAM
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2012128763
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To input input information by a rotating action of a hand easily without any touch.

A fingertip position calculation part 63 acquires a coordinate position of a fingertip of a hand included in an image. A rotating direction specification part 145 and a rotating speed calculation part 146 measure and output a rotating direction and a rotating speed of a rotating action of a predetermined fingertip as input information on a game player by the rotating action when an image is sectioned radially into a plurality of areas according to a rotational angle set based upon a center position set as the center of the rotating action of the predetermined fingertip, and when an acquired area that the fingertip coordinates belong to moves to an adjacent area. A gravity center calculation part 163 calculates the position of the center of gravity of sequentially acquired coordinate positions when the rotating action makes one round. An axis correction part 164 calculates a correction amount for correcting the areas into which the image is sectioned by moving the area so as to move the center position to the position of the center of gravity. The present invention is applicable of an input device of a game machine.
