Kottke has an excellent comparison on who/what has the most sensitive built-in accelerometer. The contenders are the Apple iPhone, Nintendo Wiimote and Kottke’s newborn son, Ollie. Awww. Cute. Barf. If you’ve manhandled the iPhone then you know the accelerometer needs to be coddled or you’ll be stuck in portrait hell or vice versa for at least 5 seconds. Am I wrong? You know it’s true, so don’t hate. The Nintendo Wiimote is a finicky little guy, but it’s way more sensitive than the iPhone. A simple flick of the wrist and your Mii is all over the screen. Me thinks it’s a little too sensitive at times. Jason, not that I’ve ever met him, picks the Wiimote as the clear victor here, but I’m inclined to disagree. Why?

Because the physiology of the human body will always make our jaws drop. Have you heard of the Moro reflex? Watch this video. You can’t tell me that’s better than a Wiimote.
