You know that cool thing the iPhone does when you turn it to landscape, it automagically knows to turn the content to match? That’s an accelerometer. The iPod Touch has one as well. And so does the Nokia N95, though Nokia doesn’t do much with it. And that’s the issue Mark at the Nokia Blog took up in this dope video. It’s not particularly usefull right now, but app developers could do some interesting things with the technology.
MacBooks, for example, can utilize the sensors to turn into lightsabers. Why not smartphones? Makes more sense to me.
