Tiny accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope board for the Raspberry Pi

Mark Williams from Ozzmaker has just launched a Kickstarter for the BerryIMU which is an I2C sensor board which contains an accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope. Now, obviously you can get those sensors separately but rarely have I seen a package this small that contains all three. He’s planning on fully documenting the board and providing example code to enable you to take all the readings. Mark’s last KS was the PiScreen, a 3.5″ TFT, and that was incredibly successful. I wish him well with this one – the board is an incredibly useful learning tool as well as being perfect for things like wheeled robots, quadcopters etc. I’m going to back it as I want one for the new version of the Picorder (of which you’ll hear more over the following weeks and months).

You can get hold of a BerryIMU for 20 Australian dollars (which is about £10, including worldwide delivery – an absolute bargain considering how much the three sensors would cost independently) by backing the Kickstarter campaign. See the campaign video below. Let’s make this happen for Mark and get hold of this brilliant little board!

    20 AUD, not 40 😉

      It’s a mystery how I managed to get that wrong… Thank you 🙂
