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.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
