What is it all about?
SimpleCV is an open source framework for building computer vision applications. With it, you get access to several high-powered computer vision libraries such as OpenCV – without having to first learn about bit depths, file formats, color spaces, buffer management, eigenvalues, or matrix versus bitmap storage. This is computer vision made easy.
* It lets you work with the images or video streams that come from webcams, Kinects, FireWire and IP cameras, or mobile phones. * It’s helps you build software to make your various technologies not only see the world, but understand it too. * SimpleCV is free to use, and because it’s open source, you can also modify the code if you choose to. * It’s written in Python, and runs on Mac, Windows, and Ubuntu Linux. * It’s licensed under the BSD license.
