The Adafruit Flora Accelerometer+COmpass sensor can sense which direction is down (towards earth) and how fast the board is accelerating in 3D space. The board also detects magnetic north. All this data can be used to change the rate and intensity of wearable LEDs
Get started with the FLORA Accelerometer with our guide on the Adafruit Learning System! It uses the same Arduino library as our conventional form LSM303 breakout. The example and library code will work 'out of the box' with FLORA. Simply download our library and connect the 3V/SCL/SDA/GND pins, install the library properly and upload our test program to read out accelerometer and magnetic field data.
Connect to a Flora via I2C and our example code will quickly get you going. Sew up the sensor by connecting 3V to 3V Flora output, Ground to common ground, SCL to I2C Clock and SDA to I2C Data on your Flora. All the pins line up and you can chain another sensor. Restart the IDE and select the example Flora sketch and start measuring speed!
