    Well, not really a gorilla, but a very uniquely coloured sensor from Dexter Industries which has been named after Snowflake, the albino gorilla, which you can see to your left, looking seductively at the camera. You can win a Dexter Industries dIMU, with a really cool white NXT socket, it’s […]

    I’ve wanted one of these sensors since the day I first saw it on the Hacked Gadgets website. It’s the Microinfinity CruizCore XG1300L. It’s a ridiculously accurate and low drift inertial measurement unit, or IMU. Some of the features include: Measures rotational speed and angle Measures tilt and acceleration Can […]
