Use your Mac as a game controller

New Powerbooks have an acceleration sensor to park the hard drive in case you drop the laptop. Amit Singh has figured out a way to use this as an interface device. Check out the cool videos of him playing games with it!

I would love to be able to switch a song in iTunes just by tapping my laptop...

I tried that automatically leveling window thingie and I found only one minor complaint. My SO started hitting me instead of the expensive Apple in order to see how the window swinged back and forth in PB while it was sitting on my lap :-D

Other than that, the controlling seemed very natural and maybe I'll try that iTunes script.

You're also an Apple user? This is news ;-)

Oh, I'm itching to buy a Mac Mini and a new Powerbook for myself... But I'll wait for Tiger.
