These smart components transmit the angular motion of the board via Bluetooth into your games. You are going to need an Android phone compatible with Google Cardboard to get started. For this project, you will need a skateboard, 1 x HC-06 Bluetooth module, 1 x MPU-6050 accelerometer/gyro, 1 x Arduino Leonardo, and a few other parts to get started.
