How would you like to build a PlayStation virtual reality (VR) headset tracker around an OpenMV-H7 camera? You can with the right parts and little help from a smart engineer and your friends at Elektor. In a new video (sponsored by Elektor), electronics YouTuber GreatScott! takes an in-depth look at the OpenMV-H7. After covering a bit of Python programming, he shows you how to use the OpenMV-H7 to track objects (e.g., a face or eyes) or colors. He also explains how he combined the camera with 3-D printing and a stepper motor to create a system that tracks his PlayStation VR headset.

You can use the OpenMV-H7 it for a wide variety of appplications, including color tracking, face detection, eye tracking, QR code detection, frame differencing, video recording, and much more.
