  • A perfect 3 axis Gyro, cheap as hell

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Cheapest 3 dimensional gyro board in the whole world
    It uses Invensense's 650 series with more than 2000 Deg/sec
    Perfect for hacking ( Interface is I2C and is hacked, just Google MotionPlus hack)

    Cons:

    Almost none as a gyroscope
    Some complained about a loose connection to Wii Remote, but I never used it with a Wii remote :)

    OtherThoughts:

    Buy this instead of buying gyro breakout boards from Sparkfun and save yourselves more than 80 USD !!

    Bottomline:

    While original MotionPlus from nintendo is reported to use IDG600 + Epson gyros, this one uses even better Gyros.
    Technically this should work better than the original Motionplus ! Good product !
