Image Processing: Gaussian Blur and Edge Detection

PLEASE ACTIVATE YOUR WEBCAM!

First experiments with accessing the webcam. The edge detection algorithm finds and highlights edges in the image. The color of an edge reflects the direction it is facing and brightness and saturation reflect the 'strength' of the particular edge. Gaussian blur is applied to reduce the influence of micro edges in the processed image.

Note: I reduced framerate and resolution to make the program run reasonably fast.
