Over the years I collected cards of the famous trading card game Magic: The Gathering. At the end of 2012 more than 20.000 different cards exist.
With increasing size of my collection it became difficult to keep an overview of all cards. Older editions did not include colored symbols for the rarity therefore many knowledge of the different cards is necessary. Lastly the collection is spread across multiple boxes, folders and stacks. For this reasons I wanted to create a system to automatically archive all cards.
This projects involves creating a frame with Lego bricks and add hardware controlled by the Arduino microcontroller. Lastly a software is created to analyse images taken by a webcam.
