Things used in this project

Hardware components

Arduino 101 & Genuino 101
Arduino 101 & Genuino 101
Includes a built-in accelerometer, so no additional components or circuitry is required.
×1
Arduino UNO & Genuino UNO
Arduino UNO & Genuino UNO
You can use an Arduino Uno (or other Arduino) instead of the Arduino 101, but you'll need an accelerometer, too.
×1
Analog Accelerometer: ADXL335
Adafruit Analog Accelerometer: ADXL335
Use this (or the SparkFun equivalent) if you're using an Arduino other than the Arduino 101 (which has an accelerometer built-in).

Code

Arduino ADXL335 Code

This code reads from an ADXL335 connected to an Arduino: the X-axis pin of the accelerometer should be connected to pin A5 of the Arduino, the Y-axis to A4, and the Z-axis to A3. Readings are sent over the serial (USB) port at 9600 baud, as tab-separated, newline-terminated ASCII data.

Arduino 101 Accelerometer Code

Reads accelerometer data from the built-in accelerometer on an Arduino 101. The readings are sent over the serial (USB) port at 9600 as newline-terminated, tab-separated ASCII data.
