I watched the Playground article. http://playground.arduino.cc/Main/MPU-6050
I tried to write a sketch, but i don't know the gyroscope unit.
i put MPU-6050 on the table, I got some data such as gyro x,y,z : 367, 220, -812
Can i converted the data into  degree per second?

The "ZRO" (Zero Rate Output) on the 6050 is +/-20 degrees per second.  At highest sensitivity, one degree per second is a value of 131 so the zero rotation value can be +/-2620.  Looks like your zero is well within spec.

To find your zero, take a long-term average.

The example shows the raw values. They are not offset compensated.
So you need to compensate the offset, and after that convert them to degrees per second.

hi guy,
could you tell me the unit of raw data MPU6050?
and how to convert raw data into coordinate ?
Thanks!

It is stated pretty clearly in the datasheet.
