== Description ==

== Executive Summary ==
Using a webcam, a projector, and possibly a microphone, this system will allow the computer to play Set. Set is a card game which involves finding patterns among a 12-card layout. The instructor at [http://modelai.gettysburg.edu/2010/set/gettingSetWithOpenCV.html this website] makes the interesting point that for humans, it is easy to gather information about the cards, but hard to find sets. For computers, it is the opposite: even with a brute force algorithm, it is a trivial matter to find all sets in a layout, but it is difficult to read the cards.

* Start the program
+
* Set out the cards
+
* When there are 12 cards, the program will start to recognize cards and find sets
+
* When the computer finds a set, it will project the locations of the cards onto the playing surface
+
* If the computer can't find a set, then project red X, or speech synthesis "No set", or print to console
