I had all the hardware working on familiar devices, so I moved to a new one with wireless capabilities. At the heart of the new configuration, was an ESP32-WROOM module that I would be programming with the Arduino IDE. The Sparkfun Thing Plus - ESP32WROOM board has an onboard battery charger so it should work as a wearable.

I found a standoff and matching screws in my parts bins, so I fastened the IMU and microcontroller together, and it left a gap for the battery. Unfortunately, I failed after two hours to get the new controller and code working. I hope I have not damaged the expensive BNO055 unit. I tried loading the example code, and I may have to try connecting to the old hardware.
