See my robotics project at:

Currently, the robot speaks, drives, does ultrasonic ranging
with L/R eye, and tilts/pans its neck.

I need vision for more intelligent stuff like designating
areas based on colour, and identifying objects.

I need a cam with a nice and easy interface.
usb is an option, but a camera like these two
is probably less power, and less glue:

A nice discontinued camera at:

A perfect camera, but not commercially available:

Currently I use a coff gcc and 2.0.38 kernel, but want to do c++,
and as I've been unable to get a coff libstdc++, I
tried upgrading to 2.4 kernel so I can use an elf g++.
This failed, as the 2.4 flash images refuse to boot for me.
Any pre-built 2.4 kernels for ucsimm available, anyone?
