I'm looking for a simple magnetometer and accelerometer

  1. Nov 22, 2014 #1
    Hey, I have only a little experience with electronics, and I'm looking for a simple sensor for a magnetometer sensitive enough to detect about a gauss and accelerometer for detecting when something is picked up. As long as I can get a good explanation (data sheets can sometimes be cryptic) I'd most definitely be willing to learn. Since this is for hobby work and I'm still fairly new to this, price is a major factor. I have an Arduino UNO, if that can help make some of the more complicated multi-function ICs friendlier to use.

    Thank you very much for any help you can offer!
