Thinking of the next big camera project? Tired of selecting between countless camera devkits with questionable designs and unknown origins? Want to hack something that "just works"?
I have a solution for you! The multi-purpose AI camera combines all the features you'll ever need for your camera to be successful:
• ESP32-S3 chip compatible with TensorFlow Lite, enabling AI right in the device.
• OV2640 camera sensor delivering 15 fps @ 2MP.
• Ultra-low power design: programmable external RTC controls the entire power distribution, allowing the device to consume microamps during sleep.
• Motion detection with wake-up support.
• Nightvision mode with software-controlled IR filter to improve pictures during daytime.
• 8 IR LEDs to illuminate the scene.
• Ambient light sensor to intelligently select between day and night-time modes.
• Convenient 70mm x 70mm form factor.
• JST-PH battery connector.
Quite a list of things to test, but USB, JTAG and CDC seem to be working fine:

By the way, did you know that ESP32S3 and IDF have built-in USB peripheral support with JTAG and a console? So you no longer need to keep auto-flashing circuits on your ESP32 boards. More information here:
