Camera integration

Has anyone had success integrating a camera to the pyboard? It would be nice to find something like the pi camera.

Indeed, as far as I know OpenMV is the only game in town. I briefly experimented with their newest board. It runs a rather old version of MicroPython. Some of the more advanced features like face recognition were a bit flaky when I tested but the basic product works OK.

Connecting a camera to the Pyboard is not really feasible as it lacks the necessary high speed interface.
