In the Maker Shed: Memsic 2125 Accelerometer


As Marc de Vinck’s Arduino 101 video shows, the Memsic 2125 accelerometer makes it easy to add tilt, acceleration, and vibration detection to your next project. It can be used for making balancing robots, game controllers, musical instruments and anything else where force measurement can be used. Want the same setup as the video? The Maker Shed carries the accelerometer along with the Maker Shield, Breadboards and the Arduino. Also, check out today’s Deal of the Day!

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
