what isn't stated is the grade of the accelerometers/gyros, as that will decide what it can be used for, just as much as the size.

Invensense always seems to be a step ahead of its competitors, introducing the world's first six-axis MEMS combo chip combining a three-axis accelerometer and three-axis gyroscope, back in 2010: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4210545/MEMS-gyro-accelerometer-combo-chip-debuts Now Invensense has upped the ante by downsizing both the size and power of its 6-axis accelerometer/gyroscope combo chip, enabling it to maintain the world's-smallest/lowest-power crowns. Here is what co-founder Daniel Goehl said to me about it: "We try to make sure that all of our newly announced MEMS chips are always a world's first."
