Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder is conceptual and is based on the well-documented, true-life fall from grace of a shadowy historical figure named Gilles de Rais, a wealthy French nobleman who was one of Joan of Arc's brothers-in-arms. He was best known, however, as a prolific serial killer who mixed prayers with his nightly murders as well as an aspiring alchemist. He was accused of a panoply of crimes, among them heresy, demonology and kidnapping. There's even an extreme fringe sect of historians who question de Rais' true status, with some convinced he was framed.

The source code is up for download, too.

It seems reasonably accurate, but stop and think for a minute how much more accurate you could make it with two cams, one at each top corner of the monitor. Left to right accuracy could be pinpoint. Add another cam at the bottom center of the screen to ramp up the vertical accuracy and we might be able to throw away our mice...

I'm guessing the image recognition algos don't strictly need color, so all three cams could be black and white to reduce cost.
