The OpenMV project - OpenMV Cam M7

The OpenMV Cam M7 is powered by the 216 MHz ARM Cortex M7 processor which can execute up to 2 instructions per clock

512KB of RAM enabling 640x480 grayscale images / video (up to 320x240 for RGB565 still)

MicroPython has 64KB more heap space (~100KB total) with the OpenMV Cam M7 so you can do more in MicroPython now

$65 retail ($55 to pre-order)

The OpenMV project is about creating low-cost, extensible, Python powered, machine vision modules and aims at becoming the “Arduino of Machine Vision“. Our goal is to bring machine vision algorithms closer to makers and hobbyists. We’ve done the difficult and time-consuming algorithm work for you leaving more time for your creativity!
The OpenMV Cam is like an super powerful Arduino with a camera on board that you program in Python. We make it easy to run machine visions algorithms on what the OpenMV Cam sees so you can track colors, detect faces, and more in seconds and then control I/O pins in the real-world.
