SimpleCV is a python framework for creating a more human readable programming interface to OpenCV.
I am really amazed how easy it was to install and use this incredible library. I am a math educator, pre-service and in-service training, and with a simple webcam and a few minutes (yes, not hours, not days, that's minutes!) I had working a feature tracking program that I hooked to some math software for REAL WORLD data analysis, and it changes EVERYTHING. Thanks a lot for this great piece of software.
