Virtuabotix Color Sensor

I was wondering how small of an area can the sensor detect. I would like to sort M&M and Skittles and was wondering if this was too small for the sensor to recognize with color accuracy.

For clarity this is the sensor I am referring to


Thanks, Kevin

The Virtuabotix Color Sensor with the Pinhole lense should work for small items like that, but you may have to put a smaller whole on the lens. I have been able to do that with a piece of electrical tape and a pinhole.

Focal distance and size are the main things you will have to tweak to work on smaller objects, but it should be do-able.
