BeagleBone cape gives Quadcopter ROS realtime brain

Launched on KickStarter, Spanish team launches the PixHawk Fire Cape targeting Linux based Quadcopter fans
Includes realtime Ubuntu distribution called Snappy

The board comes with 3 IMUs no less:
MPU6000: 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer and temperature sensor.
MPU9250: 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis magnetometer and temperature sensor
LSM9DS0: 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis magnetometer and temperature sensor.
MS5611-01BA03: Barometer that includes pressure and temperature sensors.

What can you do with 3 IMUs that you can't do with a simple $2 Inversense 6050 ?
I'm not quite sure but one of my personal interests is IMU odometry (double integration of acceleration. currently impractical due to dramatic accumulation of error). With 3 IMUs in sync maybe something new can be done ?

Dunno - that's kind of odd...
