What Makes Your Project Remarkable?

With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, webcam ownership and usage has exploded. I sought to write software that took advantage of this prevalence to make something useful. To fellow developers out there, know that this technology can be taken further. If you ever wanted to control anything with only your hands but didn't have access to the bulky hardware, know that this project uses only a webcam. The applications are vast. I believe that if anything can be done with a mouse, it can also be done with your everyday webcam.
