“This is the single most important robotics product since the Arduino.”  Ted Macy, Contributing Editor, Robot Magazine

“Charmed Labs is bringing the eventual robot uprising one step closer with their camera sensor.”  Chris-Rachael Oseland, Austin Post

“This vision sensor could be the future eyes of robots.”

“The sheer power, flexibility and ease of use of Pixy could kick-start a whole new generation of robotics.”

“It’s revolutionary because of its speed and simplicity.”  StartupsFM

Pixy is a fast vision sensor you can quickly “teach” to find objects, and it connects directly to Arduino and other controllers.  It’s great for robotics or any other application that requires computer vision.

After a very successful Kickstarter, Pixy is available now!
