Open Machine Vision Camera runs Micro Python
--------------------------------------------

The $55 machine vision camera runs micropython
and the software is all open source

https://github.com/iabdalkader/openmv

Easy to code in a PC, and download by USB to the camera
and then run the micro python program in the camera
to do some image processing.

Similar things can be done with a Linux PC, a webcam
and gambas, but the software must run on an energy
hungry PC, whereas the micropython runs on the
built in embedded controller which means it can
run for days on end from batteries.

Since the modules are tiny, you could leave it
lying around on the floor taking pictures of mice
wandering into view to trigger an electronic
mouse trap. A bit extragant, but has the makings
of future more intelligent gadgets with vision.
