IMU Mounted

So, my friend Steve has the very first 6-axis IMU I have produced, and he is using it in his Bioloid humanoid, with the standard CM-5 controller and the stock software. It will be interesting to see how that works out, and of course I will update here as it happens.

Steve machined a neat little bracket from Sintra (a type of soft plastic) that allows the IMU to be mounted directly inside a Bioloid body, in between the shoulder servos, and in front of the CM-5. I'm going to be including one of these brackets with each IMU sold.

Steve's store, Bug'n'Bots, sells the Bioloid kits, and he'll be selling my IMU as well.
