Eyecam pictures

Two pictures (from the two different eyebots) with only flourescent lights (those in the ceiling of the lab). The colours have been linearly corrected so that: r[20,240] --> r[0,255]; g[20,200] --> g[0,255]; b[16-144] --> b[0-255]. Take a look at the pictures (click them for the original ppm's) using Gimp, 400% zoom, and the colour picker tool, and you will notice all target colours (blue, yellow, red, purple, green) are distinguishable from the pixel values. (I used this code to transfer the full frame images faster.)
