There's software out there take can take advantage of the motion sensor, and use it for video games along with alarm systems. Pretty cool.

I didn't think the motion sensor was that in depth though, lol.
is this what you're talking about?



And it turns out the Macbook Pro does have tilt sensors

Yeah, I wouldn't mess around with the sensor. It's made to park your hard drive in case of a sudden jolt or drop.

That's actually pretty cool... I still don't understand the reason for this thread though...

I can think of very many ways that a tilt sensor on a laptop could actually help though, so its a pretty good idea.

this is awesome...

I remember reading a post on another forum about entropy,

if anyone has ever used the putty tool for generating random keys where you move the mouse about on a pad to get a random movement to get a unique random key will know what I'm on about)...

it'd be much cooler to create the random key by physically picking up the machine and giving it a little shake!

this actually makes me want a mac!
