This is really neat device from Bosch. I am curious to know if free-fall protection feature is already available in smartphones/tablets ?

The combo offering with inertial and magnetic sensing along with sensor fusion algorithms on the micro is now the standard from big players (ST, Freescale, InvenSense, etc.). In addition to pricing, the differentiation must come from smaller form factors and vertical integrations -literally with 3D IC stacking, etc., for more integrated solution offering. MP Divakar

What a neat device. I would love to try it on a robot for navigational purposes. If the cost is low enough, maybe use it on arms/legs for robotic applications as well.

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.
