    microcontrollers are not suitable for image processing ... u will need a DSP kit ... which will be processing the camera frames and feeding extracted information onto the microcontroller.

    Gameboy camera as is not availible and has been discontinued.

    What i recommend in Inidan scenario is DCFG aka Dirt Cheap Frame Grabber .... Get frame from a normal Camera which costs around Rs 300 . Had askes rao to do an article on it to show how to go about it but hes busy .

    ANy how try searching the net if you need more info on it .
