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. If there any Machine Learning or Computer Vision fish nerds on here, send me a PM.. would love to chat.

That's pretty cool. Would be a great way of doing automatic head counts for those faster moving fish!
