You heard it here first -- the OpenMV Cam Kickstarter is finally live! New features: upgraded 180MHz, more RAM and shield support.

http://bit.ly/openmvcam

Beta testers: we really, really appreciate your continued help with the beta testing!!  Couldn't do this without you!  We'll continue working on firmware and IDE as the KS runs.

Thanks all!  

Take a look, get in on the early backers reward, and tweet. :)

The sensor is still the same, the MCU is upgraded (180MHz/256KB RAM), IR leds, PWM headers, external lens, SDIO SD and more IO.

Looks great! 

Any intention to also offer a Wi-Fi shield for this?

Absolutely--we are working on a wifi shield, in fact.

I saw what looked to be a wifi shield, an LCD shield, and a second canera shield? Is there a cellular shield for autonomous drones or long term deployment? I'd doubt it but thought I'd ask.

Looks nice. I backed.

Ruben,

We haven't looked at GSM, but that might be worth investigating later.

Thanks,
Michael
