Pixy is the fifth version of the CMUcam, or CMUcam5, but “Pixy” is easier to say than CMUcam5, so the name more or less stuck. Pixy got its start in 2013 as part of a successful Kickstarter campaign, and as a partnership between Charmed Labs and CMU.

Pixy2 was announced recently as Pixy’s smaller, faster, and smarter younger sibling.
