This is a Wireless IMU platform. Think of it like an electric cochlea. Self balancing robots, motion processing, and more!
It is Arduino compatible, and includes the following:
We recommend the USB OTG cable and Adapter. The coin has USB OTG support! The cable and adapter also allows you to power your device off a USB Charger battery, and read a Micro SD card!
The FemtoBeacon coin, RF dongle, and code are 100% Open-Source. We are continually adding new examples, including support for VR integration (Unity3D, UE4). You can stream real-time wireless IMU and RF data to any machine.
Here are some features on this tiny beast
Chip Specs (ATMEL ATSAMR21E18A)
Note, get an Atmel ICE programmer to re-burn a bootloader should the board become "bricked". See https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1265095814/the-dime-sized-femtobeacon-wireless-imu-arm-cortex/posts/1669637
Arduino Core and Bootloader, libraries
Hardware schematic and board design
We are incredibly grateful for all of the FreeIMU community's hard work. We wanted to give back to the open source FreeIMU community by providing a 100% Open Source platform that would replace the original FreeIMU board. We hope it proves useful in the fields of physical computing, wearables, and robotics.
Our design is provided as an EAGLE PCB schematic and board (4-layer). It uses 0201 components (two sided), but is still something you can assemble by hand.
It is the smallest wireless (open source!) IMU in the world! Not even the Curie module is a match for this design. Our design is 100% open source, 100% Arduino compatible, and AWESOME for projects where precision, weight and size are critical.
We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
