The Camera Module is the first piece of add-on hardware to come out of the Raspberry Pi Foundation itself – and it addresses a real need in the Pi community. Many users are looking to use the Pi for computer vision projects ranging from near-space balloon launches – in which the Pi provides a live stream of its journey while storing higher-resolution snapshots for when it returns to the ground – to burglar alarms and home automation systems.
