I could see an early-adopter application being the film industry. Rather than optical tracking of human subject to be animated (e.g. Gollum in Lord of the Rings), gyro/accelerometer suits could allow the same type of data collection away from the camera. That would allow for post-processing to generate the being's movement from any angle. And, they have the money to put something like that together. The applications are really pretty much boundless. Not just foot trajectory, but how about physical therapy for athletes based on the complete mechanics of their movement captured via a gyro/accelerometer suit?

This is becoming really challenging. Especially when a product/system comprises several mems IC, the hard part is how to process all the information properly.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
