HackaDay Badge with Accelerometer
Souvenir from Hackaday event held on 9.April is a nice badge.
It had a empty space for small hardware upgrade (3-Axes Gyroscope + Accelerometer Module) that must be filled! :)
PCB supports placement of both GY-521 and ADXL345, but designer recommended GY-521 that (naturally) I had in my “magic box” with components… after simple soldering procedure, original firmware recognised module and simple Accelerometer demo with 8bit graphics become operational… Module is soldered only from the front side.
Enjoy short video demo and photo!
Datasheet for module is available here
