Dear community,

we are proud to release a hardware extension for our beloved Freerunner: a 
navigation board!

What is it?
The Freerunner Navigation Board is a small PCB which is able to measure 
rotations as well as the magnetic field in 3D respectively (i.e. compass and 
gyroscopes integrated). The navigation board can be integrated in the existing 
Freerunner case.

How can we test it?
In order to test the functionality of the sensors we developed a monitor 
application for sensors written completely in Vala. For more detailed 
information on both, Freerunner Navigation Board and Sensor Monitor, please 
refer to

What can we do with it?
No idea. Perhaps someone of you can find an appropriate use :p

We are looking forward to get feedback and comments.

  Christoph & Michele
