Developers, makers and hobbyists looking to create Arduino projects that record movement either from a human body or moving physical object may be interested in a new set of Arduino motion sensors created by BITalino called BITalino (r)evolution.
The (r)evolution Arduino motion sensors have been specifically built for projects that require the addition of self tracking applications based on information from your body. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about each individual sensor and how they can be combined.
“BITalino is a low-cost, purpose-built, all-in-one hardware and software toolkit designed for quick and easy creation of cool projects with body signals, development of quantified self wearable devices or apps, and/or learning how to build medical devices.
Comparative professional-grade tools for this purpose can easily cost in excess of $10,000; our vision is to make them available for anyone, and harness the power and creative thinking of the open-source movement to boost innovation in biosignal-based applications in unprecedented ways.
Out-of-the-box, BITalino provides a set of versatile, Arduino-compatible software and hardware blocks with sensors for Electrocardiography (ECG), Electromyography (EMG), Electrodermal Activity (EDA), Accelerometry (ACC), and Ambient Light (LUX), including Bluetooth Low Energy wireless communication to a software toolkit to see the signals in real time or replay offline.
What’s next? Ever since we launched, our dream has been to make BITalino more affordable, more capable, and packed with much-sought features our amazing community has been asking for. Your pledge will help us trigger a true BITalino (r)evolution!”
