First test of the CMUcam5 PIXY Camera by CMU

"Pixy is a fast, low-cost vision sensor you can quickly “teach” to find objects, and it connects directly to Arduino and other controllers. For more information see the wiki ."

This a very cool vision camera for the price. I bought mine for 70.00 USD.

Link to where you can buy if from Adafruit.   

It is a little big for my like but the camera can do a lot of vision processing on board. Which is a great help if you are using a dumb controller like the Arduino.

Link to Wiki page for basic tutorials.  

My next project is to get it to work with the CM-904c. (link)

Robby My DARwIn-OP Clone at the World Maker Faire 2014.

As you can see in the video below. I have made a few improvements on Robby and he is very close to a production version of the DARwIn-OP. I am also not done with this project yet as I want him to be better and cheaper than a production version. So far I have spent a little less then 8000.00 USD on him.

My more detailed blog post on my 3D printing of humanoid robots project.
