Movea MotionPod Wireless Inertial Measurement Unit

Movea introduced the MotionPod wireless Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The MotionPod features nine Degree-of-Freedom (DOF) motion, 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis magnetometer, and 2.4GHz wireless transmitter. The MotionPod measures only 33x22x15mm (1.3″x0.8″x0.6″) and weighs 14g (0.5 oz). A single MotionPod can provide information like range of motion, rotation, speed, and acceleration. Multiple MotionPods can be networked to gather information simultaneously from different parts of the body. It is ideal for fitness, gaming, and sports applications.
