Hello, I'm trying to work on a project in Python that involves the use
of a webcam to track a laser pointer.  I found some example code here
http://janto.blogspot.com/2006/01/motion-capture-in-python.html, but
the problem is that it's quite slow (about a sec to  process a 800 by
600 image).  Can anyone who has experience with computer vision help
me?  Are there any existing algorithms for finding a color in an image
and plotting its coordinates?  It would help me very much.

the profile.py output from the example can be found here if anyone's
interested
