Support System for Etching Latte Art by Tracing Procedure Based on Projection Mapping
It is difficult for beginners to create well-balanced etched latte art patterns using two fluids with different viscosities, such as foamed milk and syrup. However, it is not easy to create well-balanced etched latte art even while watching process videos that show procedures. In this paper, we propose a system that supports beginners in creating well-balanced etched latte art by projecting the etching procedure directly onto a cappuccino. In addition, we examine the similarity between etched latte art and design templates using background subtraction. The experimental results show the progress in creating well-balanced etched latte art using our system.
