I’m happy to report that I received the OpenMV board purchased through the firesale and had a chance to play with it today.
My initial tests were using the IDE from github, launching the IDE from the command line on my fairly old MacBook Pro (had an issue getting the package to run, could be my old machine, will dig into that later). I got some of the basic examples to work (Hello World, face tracking and recognition, LCD). There were a few glitches, but I need to do some more testing before reporting or trying to fix any of them. It could be minor incompatibilities with the old version of OSX I have running, could be something that Ibrahim has already fixed and pushed to github in the last few hours since I was playing with it, could be things that have already been fixed in firmware and that I just need to update; nothing I’m worried about yet.
Understanding that most of the development was done in Linux, I’m going to run the IDE on an Ubuntu box tomorrow and see how it works there; that will give me an indication if there is anything that is expected to work in Linux that I might be able to help to resolve for OSX.
One thing that would help- and it is possible that it is documented somewhere obvious and I just haven’t seen it yet- would be instructions for building and updating the firmware. I am pretty familiar with MicroPython development (though not a master coder by any stretch!) and I would be interested in digging into the openmv extensions to MicroPython.
