Welcome To The Wockets Wiki!
Wockets are small, wireless accelerometers that send body motion data to mobile phones. They are being developed as part of an open source effort to create low cost, motion measurement devices for hobbyists, researchers, and developers interested in creating software and devices that measure or respond to movement. For an overview of the Wockets project see the
Wockets Project Home Page
This wiki is the place where the real work gets done. Would you like to use Wockets, or do you have the hardware or software expertise to contribute to the design? If so, please get involved.
