Hello, I am attempting to utilize a combination of an IMU and Pressure Sensor “Qwiic Pressure Sensor - LPS25HB” for data gloves. This is to capture hand and arms movements in space. This goal is essentially a budget-constrained motion capture for the hands and upper body.

I am looking at two of the IMUs, which are "SparkFun VR IMU Breakout - BNO080 (Qwiic)" and "SparkFun 9DoF Razor IMU M0"

I watched some videos https://youtu.be/tFtgKl-UYNg and https://youtu.be/EsgKAawwT9A?t=455.

In this video (https://youtu.be/EsgKAawwT9A?t=455) LadyAda states the BNO055 (Now the BNO080) uses sensor fusion to give you quaternions and Euler angles and “just gives you the vector” so you don’t need to do the math. Is this true of any of the IMUs or is this really something different.

In order of importance

I think that if I utilize "SparkFun Qwiic Adapter" on a breakout IMU board, I can achieve Qwiic results.

I am playing catch-up on DIY (30+ years removed my electronics background). What might be the best choice or something else altogether?

Thank you for you assistance.

In order of importance

- I would like to limit or eliminate the math.

- I would like to limit or eliminate calibrations.

- I would really like to utilize the Qwiic system to limit soldering.
