Real-time blob/circle detection from camera

Hi I'm trying to get a camera feed, find blobs/circles and have them drawn on the display, the code I have right now leads to python crashing.

I am eventually trying to get eyetracking and hopefully eyegaze tracking working with SImpleCV, and would appreciate any pointers. I considered using findHaarFeatures() to detect the general eye area, crop it, and then using binarize() to make it easier to detect the pupils. However I found that to be too laggy.

My current code looks like this:

from SimpleCV import *

cam = Camera()
disp = Display(cam.getImage().size())

while disp.isNotDone():
    video = cam.getImage()
    blobs = video.findBlobs()

I'm currently running Ubuntu 14.04 w/ python 2.7.6, and simplecv 1.3 installed straight from the github repo. No crashes here running your code as is. I am getting some error messages when the image window is closed, but that is a simplecv/pygame issue, not related to your code specifically.
