I have always wanted to make a self-balancing robot. This post will be a diary on my journey to making one.
I’ll be updating this post as I go along this journey complete with details of the success and frustrations, pictures and expenses.

Ordered and paid for LSM9DS1 Breakout board from Circuit-Help. This one has an Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Magnetometer in a single board which would really be helpful for this project.
After much research I saw a LSM9DS0 Breakout board in Lazada, much more expensive (₱ 1,446/pc) but has a higher accuracy than the LSM9DS1. Since I already bought the LSM9DS1 Breakout Board I just have to live with my decision.
Expenses for the day
|Adafruit 9-DOF Accel/Mag/Gyro+Temp Breakout Board – LSM9DS1||₱ 905|
|Shipping (via LBC Express)||₱ 160|
Total Expense so far: ₱ 1,065
