Timothy sent us an update from PiBorg. Today, they have released a new product called XLoBorg that offers an accelerometer and magnetometer add-on board for the Raspberry Pi. Timothy: “It’s a true plug in board, so it’s very easy to use and great for beginners ” :
Measure movement such as bumps and shocks and determine direction from your Raspberry Pi with the XLoBorg add on board by PiBorg.
Features a 3 Axis Accelerometer and 3 Axis Magnetometer
Great for Robotics projects such as UAV’s, cars, navigation and just about anything!
Uses only the I2C pins of the Raspberry Pi (and power), so you have lots of free pins to connect to PicoBorg or a LedBorg, or both!
Simply plug it on to the GPIO header of your Raspberry Pi, run the software, and start sensing movement and direction!
