New stuff always comes in handy. We are regularly hunting for new kits, shields, modules, actuators, sensors, batteries and present them to you. As long as we find something interesting or useful, we let you know in our posts on IntoRobotics, so you don’t need to search for them.
Now it’s time for some fresh kits, electronics, frames and batteries for a designer’s toolbox.
Gizmos and Gadgets Kit is a distinctive building kit, suitable for kids and anyone whose love the power of magnets. The kit contains 15 littleBits modules and tools to make a multitude of projects such as mobile robots.
MinIMU-9 v5 Gyro, Accelerometer, and Compass (LSM6DS33 and LIS3MDL Carrier)
Pololu packs an LSM6DS33 3-axis gyro and 3-axis accelerometer, and an LIS3MDL 3-axis magnetometer sensor on this little board called MinIMU-9. The sensor is designed to calculate the orientation using measurements for rotation, acceleration, and magnetic.
AltIMU-10 v5 Gyro, Accelerometer, Compass, and Altimeter (LSM6DS33, LIS3MDL, and LPS25H Carrier)
AltIMU-10 is a more featured version of the MinIMU-9 sensor. Pololu adds an LPS25H digital barometer sensor beside the LSM6DS33 3-axis gyro and 3-axis accelerometer, and an LIS3MDL 3-axis magnetometer sensor.
