Re: March 21 - Day FOUR: When to Use FPGAs to Accelerate Embedded Vision Applications

@tscheffe: Can you recommend any hardware/software for one to introduce/discuss/teach vision technology to elementary school children, or Boy Scouts pursuing a merit badge?

To "introduce" kids to computer vision, try the BDTI OpenCV Executable Demo Package, available for download from the Embedded Vision Alliance website.  bit-dot-ly/YIz9EH

Kids can play with the sliders and get immediate feedback on how it alters the algorithm.

It's not too different from instagram, letting kids play with parameters and view an immediate response.
They do not need to understand the details of what the parameters do in the algorithm, just the effect the parameters have on the result.
