The Apple Sudden Motion Sensor [1]

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 [1] 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 [2] 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.
