NXT Robot Camera
« on: December 06, 2008, 05:48:23 PM »
I have seen a NXTcam that can be connected to any microcontroller using the I2C interface and to the computer with a mini USB cable. It can track 8 objects simultaneously at 30 fps, user defined colors, returns coordinates of object boxes, has 2 operating modes: object tracking or line tracking. The camera is based on the AVRcam and has open source software. And it is nicely enclosed.

Interesting find . . . I just added it to the video camera FAQ:
