The Apple Sudden Motion Sensor

The Apple Sudden Motion Sensor

Just to follow up on the previous post, where I mentioned kernelthread.com…

I stumbled upon kernelthread.com because Amit Singh, who runs the site, has written some cool utilites that utilise the sudden motion sensor (AMS) in the newest PowerBooks (since january 2005). The article also digs into some OS X internals, for the so inclined.

Here’s a QuickTime clip that shows the utilties in action.

The AMS really has some potiential, real-world, applications, and it must be something quite similar that is used for the controller, that has been announced for the Nintendo Revolution console.
