Hi Everybody,

Given that the whole point of these super awesome circuits is to be very small, it seems like a pretty natural desire to have all the inertial sensing stuffed onto one shield instead of 3=12mm tall.  Bosch has several "9 axis" parts available integrating 3 axis accel, 3 axis gyroscopes, and 3 axis magnetometer into one single 3mm*5mm*1mm package.

It will naturally be pricier than a 3 axis accel board, but in applications where space is a premium (Which is why we are all using these awesome boards!), I'd sure rather buy one board and be done with all the sensing forever :)  Certainly very useful for all the motion sensing applications out there as well as the micro quad-copter people.

They also have the combined sensor and sensor fusion chips that are only slightly bigger and output absolute orientation data  Given that this will be a premium board over the single accel board, that might be nice to just do that.  It would probably help to differentiate this option compared to buying the accel, gyros and magnetometer individually.

Thanks and keep up the awesome work!!!

P.S. I'm a engineering PhD student who does micro robotics and inertial sensor designs if its helpful!

Woops, didn't notice that this was already suggested in another thread, my bad.  Go vote for it there though!

Also, moderator if you wanted to just delete this thread that would be great.  Didn't mean to confuse everything. just wasn't looking for the word "sensor fusion."
