Frequently Asked Questions

What is CamSpace?

CamSpace is a program that lets you control computer games using your WebCam with everyday, ordinary objects. So instead of using a mouse, keyboard or joystick, now you can use things like a steering wheel cut out of cardboard, a ketchup bottle or even your fingers to control your game play.

CamSpace currently only works on Windows, but Mac and Linux versions are on the way.

How can I use CamSpace?

All you need to do is to download CamSpace here. A friendly Wizard will walk you through the simple setup process allowing you to start playing within minutes.

How do I lock on to an object?

Whenever you launch a game within CamSpace, a Wizard will walk you through the process of locking onto an object. Here are things to remember as you configure CamSpace to lock on an object:

  1. Make sure there's plenty of light in the room you're in.
  2. Pick a bright, colorful object with a uniform color that is NOT the color of your shirt or the wall behind you.
Look at our "Right and wrong" page to learn more about object locking.
