I made this variable threshold hand contour detection utility in openframeworks, using the ofxCv and ofxOpenCv addons. I was working on this problem last semester and was struggling with it, until I started working with Kyle McDonald’s ofxCV addon. I was able to detect a hand in a video (i used several videos to make sure it works consistently in variable lighting conditions), and extract the convexity defects from the hand contour. This can be used to eventually identify the digits of the hand and parse gestures from the video
