Updated 10 Nov 2008

No License

The tool can capture images in black/white or RGB and send them to matlab. The tool uses some code initially posted here on matlabcentral by Ikkjin Ahn and is reused here with permission from the previous owner. The capture method uses java and can produce 20 frames per second if no other computation is done on the side.

The tool should work on all macosx versions of matlab 10.4-10.5, though it is only tested thouroughly on leopard.

If you find that the tool works with other macbooks or webcams aswell please let me know.
