31  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Connect 3 accelerometers to Arduino Uno on: November 12, 2012, 08:53:44 am
If you are attaching the sensors to a glove, you may want to consider flex sensors.
Maybe use one 3 axis accelerometer for hand position, and 3 or four flex sensors for the fingers.

The accelerometer could be I2C and the flex sensors wired to the analog pins.

Something like this?     http://www.adafruit.com/products/182

They were used in the Nintendo power glove.

Here is a LCD tutorial from Adafruit:

An accelerometer can be used for sensing vibration.

A multiple axis accelerometer will work better than a single axis.
Then you won't have to guess which axis is better for sensing the vibration.

Since you are trying to sense very low vibration I would try a low g accelerometer, somewhere under 3g.
Sparkfun offers a digital ADXL345? that is 1.5g & 6g selectable, 3 axis accelerometer.  They have a few different types to choose from.
Adafruit offers an analog 3g & 16g, 3 axis accelerometer.

Good luck smiley
34  Using Arduino / Sensors / Re: ADXL 335 Accelerometer for Leveling? on: November 08, 2012, 01:19:15 pm
It works fine for me.

I am using Adafruit's ADXL335 breakout board for my level project.
I am getting 1/2 degree accuracy.  It will work fine.
