IMU and Wireless Overview
This post tries to collect an overview of Inertial Measurement Unit devices and Wireless Modules available. In part because the current DIY version of the gloves uses the ArduIMU which comes uncalibrated and without built-in wireless communication. The uncalibrated IMU sensor data makes it hard to use the DIY gloves in a meaningful way, and calibrating the sensors yourself is no easy task.
