The paper presents an analysis of the quality of motion data from an iPod Touch (4th gen.). Acceleration and orientation data derived from internal sensors of an iPod is compared to data from a high end optical infrared marker-based motion capture system (Qualisys) in terms of latency, jitter, accuracy and precision. We identify some rotational drift in the iPod, and some time lag between the two systems. Still, the iPod motion data is quite reliable, especially for describing relative motion over a short period of time.
