While discussing our IMU board with Bram Stolk on comp.robotics.misc, he pointed out that there are cheap Gyration GyroPoint desk mice available on eBay.

These each contain one Murata ENC05-EA and one Murata ENC05-EB ceramic solid state gyros. Rather than spending $59 per MG100 dual axis gyro, we can buy these for $6 per mouse.

I'll have to redesign the IMU board to deal with these, but that is part of the development process. Rev 1.1 will fix the MAX231 pinouts and maybe switch to these other gyro units.
