I've just read this http://www.st.com/stonline/stappl/cms/press/news/year2010/t2464.htm.

Of course, this shouldn't be news to footpod developers, but might be of
interest to users of footpods. Perhaps coming generations of footpods will
use technology like this? AFAIU it should help improve footpod accuracy.
Using 3D should, I believe, drastically reduce the need for calibration for
different gaits (due to shift in speed, different shoes, placement on shoe,
uphill/downhill running, etc).
