mux posted an update on his camera project OpenMV, an open-source tiny machine vision module using an STM32F4 ARM Cortex-M4 micro and an OV9650 sensor:

I’ve mentioned building the STM32F4xx libraries in a previous post, you can checkout the repo linked there if you want to build the libraries.

Face Detection-Many were very interested in this feature, well I’ve managed to get the viola-jones face detector working on the camera, and it’s working fine…
