Jeffrey talks to Brian from Movea, a name that you probably aren’t familiar with but you may be familiar with their consumer brand Gyration and the Gyration Air Mouse. On show here is their new MotionPod, a sensor module equipped with three-axis accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers all in package smaller than a matchbox. This can track a full range of motion and transmit the information wirelessly back to a PC or mobile device. The demonstration on the video shows a MotionPod attached to a golf club so that motion of the swing can be captured. Prices for the MotionPods weren’t given but they’re cheap enough to be built into consumer-level products.
