It's great to hear about these initiatives - technology has certainly come a long way since the robotic mail carriers at Texas Instruments, lurching along a path of reflective tape.

At least with this module it could see the tape even if it wasn't reflective!

I think this is brilliant.  It's the simple ideas that have the biggest impact.  Working in machine vision for twenty years I can tell you, the shop floor guys spend an enormous amount of time trying to get their system to track color and shapes.  Constantly re-inventing the wheel.

Fundamentally Pixy acts much like a human eye.  It sends info to the brain for it's consideration and has built in ability to separate colors and detect edges.

Beautiful.

The mountain had formed millions of years before when two tektronix plates collided.
