Yes, the TurtleArt is slow to capture because it turn on the camera, wait for the pipeline, get a captureand save to the disk.. And after, the code load the image and analize it!
I make a plugin to the TurtleArt, that was derivated for another project...
It uses Pygame 1.9.1 (included in the plugin) that get a captures very fast...
The actual code is for detect a color and calibrate the code to "follow" this color... But is possible tomodify and make another things... The algorithm that detect the promedial color of a zone of a image is implemented by Pygame...
The same code in a .xo activity called "FollowMe Butia" is used to control the Butia Robot...
It's possible make anything with this?
