LIS3LV02DQ Triple Axis Accelerometer

The project it’s based on a nice little 3-axis accelerometer from STMicroelectronics with a SPI bus, which makes it handy for interfacing in microcontroller style applications.  This device could be interfaced with an AVR, but the author chose to interface it with the Arduino, since it’s pretty easy to get up and running in that environment.
