 Pixy (CMUcam5) is a partnership between the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute and Charmed Labs. Pixy comes from a long line of CMUcams, but Pixy got its real start as a [[https://​www.kickstarter.com/​projects/​254449872/​pixy-cmucam5-a-fast-easy-to-use-vision-sensor|Kickstarter campaign]]. It first started shipping in March of 2014, but it's already become **the most popular vision system in history**! Pixy is funded exclusively through sales, so thank you for making Pixy a success! You can watch the original Kickstarter video below -- it's a good introduction! Pixy (CMUcam5) is a partnership between the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute and Charmed Labs.

 PixyMon is great for debugging your application. You can plug a USB cable into the back of Pixy and run PixyMon and then see what Pixy sees while it is hooked to your Arduino or other microcontroller -- no need to unplug anything. PixyMon is open source, like everything else. PixyMon is great for debugging your application.
