Vizy can help defend your birdfeeder from squirrels, explore the physics of everyday objects, show you the wonders of space from the comfort of your own couch, and much more!
What makes Vizy special is a combination of custom hardware, a sleek Python-programmable web interface, and a variety of included programs that make it easy to do cool things like identify 20 different bird species, read text, capture the motion of moving objects, remote control telescopes, etc. etc.
We’re on the edge of our seats waiting for the HoverGames Challenge winners to be announced!
Put on by NXP and Hackster.io, the challenge pairs individuals and teams with a custom drone development kit, which (for 100 lucky participants who win a hardware coupon) includes a Pixy2 camera for object recognition. The goal is to figure out novel ways to assist firefighting crews – delivering supplies, scanning fires for hot spots, or something else.
Good luck to the teams and to the judges! We are happy to see our technology being used to build a healthier and more resilient world.
You asked, and we listened – Pixy2 for Lego Mindstorms is now a reality!
Functionally, Pixy2 for Lego retains all the features you’ve come to love – line following, integrated LED light source, and color tracking mode – and adds the ability to connect to the Mindstorms EV3 brick with the included cable.
We’ve also updated our software library for the Mindstorms programming environment, so you can just drag and drop the Pixy2 block into your program to receive data directly.
Already own a Pixy2 and want to upgrade? Good news! All you need is a free firmware upgrade and a $9 cable – see our instructions here.
Hello Pixy fans! We are excited to share that we have been invited to join the digital realms of sellers on Walmart.com – so Pixy2 and its Pan/Tilt base are now available at Walmart online with free shipping in the US!
we are proud to say that Pixy is now carried by major online electronics retailer Sparkfun! They even made a sweet video about our little camera system! Check the video out below – or click here for the product page.
We’ve got more good stuff in the works – our engineering team is cranking hard to release some new products in the next 6 – 12 months. Stay tuned!
What have people been making with Pixy? Lots of cool stuff, apparently! Every week we scour Youtube for fresh videos from Pixy users around the world. We add the most popular ones to our Youtube playlist called “What Can You Make With A Pixy?”
