@Caleb: If you're anything like me, you'll just end up with a pile of potentialy awesome things that you can never seem to get enough time to assemble!

I'm there already!!! (Sad face)

Thanks for this posting.  I can see this opening many doors in the area of robotics and learning course materials for learners.  For instance, this can be used to help develop fire management training courses and many other subjects.  I am still trying to get my hands around the many opportunities that this will provide in the future.  I think further research is needed.  But what a wonderful start and I think the future is bright in this area.

@kdwyer: Looking forward to the Pixy as well. They seemd to have been overwhelmed with the demand, delivery is now ~January

On the one hand I want it now, but on the other hand this gives me more time to learn the Arduino and build a robot test bed. (Plus that hexacopter kickstarter project I mentioned in my last Arduino blog should give me something to play with).

Also, the speed with which things are racing along these days means that all I have to do is blink, and it will be January already LOL

...check out what our colleagues at Charmed Labs and Carnegie Mellon are doing. Using an LPC microcontroller as the basis of their design, they've developed a fast vision sensor that lets you teach a system to find objects and report its findings though several simple interfaces. More about their design, Pixy, is available on their Kickstarter project page.

I pledged to thi sproject a couple of weeks ago when I first saw it. I cannot wait to receive my own Pixy vision sensor and use it as part of an Arduino robot :-)

At Design West 2013 earlier this year, there were some great presentations on Embedded Vision and Embedded Speech.

Things are racing along in there areas -- I can't wait for Design West 2014 to see what advances have been made over the year.
