Ibrahim created the OpenMV project back in 2013 In Search of a Better Serial Camera Module. His goal was to build a small, affordable, and expandable machine vision module. Over time the project grew from his blog to a Hackaday Project, then to a KickStarter, and finally to what it is today.
I joined the OpenMV project back in 2015 to help make it a reality. As the creator of the CMUcam4 I knew a thing or two about getting a product in stores. Together Ibrahim and me run the OpenMV project.
Anyway, thanks for checking out OpenMV,
