Pixy is a smart vision sensor you can quickly “teach” to find objects. It saves you time by only outputting the object data you're interested in. A multitude of connection options means you can use Pixy with almost any microcontroller. It connects directly to Arduino with the included cable, and fully supports Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black with included software libraries. Included in the box is mounting hardware to attach Pixy to your robot creation. The firmware, software and hardware are open source, so you can tweak to your heart's delight. Free tech support is included on the CMUcam wiki! Note: if you are using an Arduino shield in conjunction with Pixy, you may need to purchase Stackable Headers for the Pixy cable to fit. USB cable not included.

Secondly, although it works pretty well in demo situations where the lighting is constant, it performs poorly when the lighting conditions change. If you get it to recognize a color under one set of lighting conditions, it will no longer recognize it when the lighting shifts. This is a problem for us since we would like to use this on a robot which moves around which causes the lighting conditions to change.
Some of these problems might be fixable if we could modify the firmware, but although the firmware is open source, the tools required to build it are not and cost thousands of dollars. They have promised to provide open source tools, but, as far as I know, this promise has not yet been met.
2017 update: On our Steamworks machine we used 2 Pixy sensors (boiler and gear peg), this time using the I2C interface. Despite having 5 feet of wire on the I2C bus (a pretty bad idea) our targeting was solid most of the time. If there is retroreflective tape on the 2018 field a Pixy will probably be on our robot.
When building and installing the pixymon software, you will need to comment out line 71 of usr/host/pixymon/pixymon.pro, viz.,
QMAKE_CXXFLAGS += -mno-ms-bitfields
Also, once the code has been successfully compiled, you will need to create a "Documents" directory in your home directory, that is,
without this directory, pixymon will crash with a Segmentation Fault at start up. Pixymon runs with a bit of latency on the Pi, but it runs and provides a useful interface. I would advise against powering the pixy with pan/tilt servos attached via USB connection to the Pi. I tried this and crashed my Pi and have not been able to use pixymon to interface with the pixy from the Pi since.
Easy to Use
Color Codes for distance and angles are very useful in many applications
Every possible connection to computer, arduino, ect. built in
Built in CPU does all the fast calculations, so doesn't slow down raspberry pi
Setup of Colors require a bit of tweaking
Lighting changes greatly effect the color recognition
Better at close range than long range
Long range colors register different than when close range
Great for projects intermediate to advance.
Personally I'm using it for a pick and sort robot and it's fast and consistent. Does what I need it to do!
