New Eu And Canada Trade Agreement
click here This is potentially very good news for EZ-Robot purchasers based in the EU.

I've been having a lot of fun with the camera control and custom detection using the Haar xml files examples. I can get my left eye or right eye detected by EZ-Builder even a clock face not all seem to work but the ones that do are great.
