This module is a 3-axis accelerometer and gyroscope. There is a 2 position slide switch to change between modes. For now, the design has "slope mode" and "tap mode" which are both shown in the YouTube video. I plan on implementing a "revolve" mode and "E=mgh" mode as well.

It contains InvenSense MPU-6050 for the accelerometer and gyroscope and an Atmel ATMEGA32U4 Arduino supported AVR micro controller to control the module. It's the same chip that's on the littleBits Arduino module currently sold:

The schematics and Arduino source code will be completely opened on my repository (if the module gets made!), so you can modify the modes, functions and module however you want!

    This would be cool for building a power glove like device, and making it wireless with the wireless modules. For example you could make a wireless TV channel switcher and you could change the channel by moving your hand. You have my vote and i hope this becomes a real module.

      Thanks for your vote and comment! Exactly as you say, this module would become more powerful and creative by connecting with other modules. I just want to provide nice playground for user. It must be along with awesome/unique concept of littleBits;)

    Definitely a neat little mod. Actually, I'm surprised that it doesn't already exist given the seemingly limitless pratical applications (although impractical are the most fun) when used in conjunction with other mods.
    → RC cars, drones, etc. can report back results mid-race
    → Your "something" going a bit too fast for your liking? Report back and slow or shut down.
    → IF change in velocity,THEN uuhh, who knows.
    → Train your pet to tap for his treat. (cruel but cool)
    Good luck! My vote is in!
