I also thought it was interesting that this camera uses an ARM processor, something you don't exactly see a lot in camera platforms. naperlou, are you willing to share some of those ideas for apps?

I agree Naperlou. There is a wide range of applications for a smart camera this small. In manufacturing alone, these cameras could help with track and trace as well as data collection and verification.

Opens up new applications

NO RATINGS
This is a great new development.  It is interesting that it uses the ARM architecture.  Chalk up another one for ARM.  It also opens up new applications  The vendor often lists target applications, but, as the author mentions, the form factor and other specs will get engineers thinking about other apps.  I already have some ideas.
