Apples iPhone 4 Gyroscope

Chipworks MEMS gyroscope die

After reading about the iPhone 4’s gyroscope during WWDC, I have to admit I wasn’t sure how such a thing would work.  I’ve only ever really encountered the spinning gyroscopes you get as a kid, and I couldn’t really see something like that fitting in a phone!

Thanks to this Wikipedia entry, and  this article on the mystry is solved – worth a read if you feeling geeky.
