I don't have a clue which GB camera I am talking about ...
I just noticed an article on the net last night using it on a bot so I thought I'd add it to my list of candidates. Probably the Pocket one since you say it is better.
Here's the page that I found: http://www.seattlerobotics.com/blue.htm
Thanks !

This is the original gameboy camera (black and white screen) I think...
It is the Mitsubishi artificial retina chip.. does enhancing, edge extraction all on chip.

Hmmm - good info!
Do you know of any VC++ code out there for it ? Are there any kits out there including this dedicated to robotics or do we have to hack it ?
Thanks !

hack away.
I haven't seen VC++ code, but there is C code..
google: gameboy camera robot vision
apendragon is one guy that posted code I think..
also MRM page?
interfacing to the camera is simple. Protocol is well documented.
needs an external ADC,
low resolution (120X120 I think)
perfect for robot vision. b/w or greyscale if I recall correctly
