How-to Tuesday: Arduino 101 Accelerometers

Arduino Education


Today, I am going to show you how easy it is to connect, and use, a Memsic 2125 Accelerometer from the Maker Shed. This sensor is able to detect tilt, acceleration, rotation, and vibration with a range of ±2 g. It can be used for making balancing robots, game controllers, musical instruments and more. I’ll get you started…what you do next is up to you!
