Shari Vedovato a 3D graphics designer has created a unique camera system that is capable of providing your robot projects with a set of robot eyes called RoboSnap.
The RoboSnap robotic eyes are capable of distinguishing objects based on their colour, size and shape and can easily be added to a wide variety of projects and applications.
Watch the video below to learn more about RoboSnap that supports LEGO mindstorm based robotic platforms as well as being used with the Raspberry Pi mini PC.
“The RoboSnap camera provides vision for your robot. RoboSnap distinguishes colored objects, the approximate size and shape of the objects, and takes low resolution images so you can see what RoboSnap sees. RoboSnap provides support for several programming languages that are easy to use for kids and also supports more advanced projects for adults.
Check out all our APIs (Snap, Scratch, Python and C) and examples on our Wiki for more details. Watch how we programmed our robot to play the xylophone, chase a spider and more! RoboSnap works with the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 as well as the Raspberry Pi + the BrickPi.”
For more information on the new RoboSnap jump over to the Kickstarter website for details and make a pledge from just $63 to get the PCB and software only version of the robot eye system.
