%% discription
% Virtual Painter - this software allows you to draw a picture on the screen
% By following the red color
% 
% Have the option to choose what color to paint by moving the red color to the desired color:
% Red, green, blue.
% 
% To close the program, have received faint image on the screen
% 
% Note: In order to achieve optimal results have run the program in the light of fluorescent lamp.
% % Operating Instructions
% To paint the color red object we vote to act as follows:
%% Play and exit:
%
% * To start the video: click on the Play button.
% * To exit from the function: Display to the camera very dark image ,
%    for example you can cover the camera with your hand,
%    Or turn off the light in the room.After doing so
%    The Camera and function should be closed automatically.
%% Notes
%  The identification of red objects in the picture depends on the lighting of the room.
%  Lighting Fluorescent light is the most appropriate lighting to this function to identify red objects.
