Yet another sensor mounted on a breakout board by Parallax, is the Memsic 2125 accelerometer:

Demo sketch, called “accel2125_demo” in the Ports library:

Sample output:

The pulses are 5 msec at rest, and changed slightly when I moved this thing (rather gently).

Might work nicely for a self-balancing robot…
