Interesting Use of Hardware…


Many of the new macbooks come equiped with built-in sensors that detect if your laptop suddenly starts moving, determining things like if it had been dropped off a table, bumped off a shelf, or defenestrated. This is a video of one of my friends from Youtube named “SeanthaBomb,” and I really liked it.

I know a lot of laptop companies use sudden motion sensors, including IBM and Acer. I wonder if any practical (iphone-like) applications will spring from software like this. I mean, come on. Super Monkey Ball on my laptop?

‘Nuff said.
