Gyroscopic sensors are handy little devices as they allow you to measure angular rotation with selectable resolutions using a standard microcontroller.
We've got two different boards which use the same chip, however, the Adafruit one has a nicer silkscreen guide and pin labelling if that's what your after. Alternatively, the Pololu board is just as good, but in a different form factor, without the fancy silkscreen.

SKU: POLOLU-2129| Brand: Pololu AustraliaThis sensor is a carrier/breakout board for the ST L3GD20H three-axis gyroscope, which measures the angular rates of rotation about the roll (X), pitch (Y), and yaw (Z) axes. Angular velocity measurements with a configurable range of ±245°/s, ±500°/s, or ±2000°/s can be read through a digital I²C or SPI interface. The board has a 3.3 V linear regulator and integrated level-shifters that allow it to work over an input voltage range of 2.5 V to 5.5 V, and the 0.1″ pin spacing makes it easy to use with standard solderless breadboards and 0.1″ perfboards.
