Ruby Robot Help (web cam & serial)

Hi All,

I have been a Java Robot guy for some time (Author Definitive Guide to
Building Java Robots by Apress) but want to do some stuff with Ruby but
I am
limited by two things: web cam capture and serial communication and I
was
hoping to avoid C.

Are there any gems or scripts out there to help me out? I’ve Googled but
can’t find anything…

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Scott

I use ruby-serialport:

For webcam capture, I’ve been shelling out to mencoder. I would like to
see an all ruby solution though!

Thanks I will check those out!
