Not all appendage attachments have to be straight on a motor. Sometimes, you will want to have a rotating appendage that is not on a motor. I don't know what those Lego pieces are called but there is a piece in which there is a shell and you could attach something inside the shell and the shell could rotate. My hat piece, for example could benefit from the rotation sensor to detect how far those have turned. Hope this helps.

Well first test with it so you can understand it. Once you completely understand your equipment you can use them correctly use them. However you could use this to to monitor your speed. I googled it and this is what came up. "Constantly aware of that speed sensation; Rotational speed sensor". So hopefully this helps.

You could maybe use it for a pulley system to make sure it goes exactly how far you want it too.

@Jesus Arzapalo: That is true; You could use it for a pulley

Also, what do you mean buy the "rotation sensor"? Do you mean the Potentiometer sensor? (I think I spelled it right :D )
