PNI Sensor has unveiled a development module that offers gaming application developers a 9-axis motion tracking technology. The SpacePoint Scout includes a 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis geomagnetic sensor, highly proven sensor fusion algorithms and an I2C interface for quick implementation, noted the company.

SpacePoint Scout comes with the same RM3000 geomagnetic sensor as the one used in the new Nintendo Wii U GamePad. The geomagnetic sensor uses PNI Sensor's proprietary magneto-inductive technology that offers more than 15 times better resolution and 16 times less noise than commonly used Hall effect magnetic sensors. The RM3000, in conjunction with the SpacePoint Scout's sensor fusion algorithms, enables highly accurate pointing and motion tracking even in the presence of magnetic anomalies, stated the company.

PNI Sensor's SpacePoint Scout module is available for $99.
