Wiiiiiiiiiiiiii…..

À semlhança do SmackBook um Desktop Manager e do MacSaber o utilitário mais inútil e divertido que vi nos últimos tempos para o Mac, os portáteis da Lenovo (antigos IBM Thinkpad) podem ser transformados em pseudo-consolas Wii. Definitivamente, vou experimentar logo à noite!!! ;)

Google Maps Tilt with ThinkPad

It uses the orientation and motion sensor of the ThinkPad hard disk’s Active Protection System to enable you to navigate your Google map by tilting your laptop. Tilt left, your map goes left, and so forth. It’s a hack. It runs only in IE, requires you install ActivePerl (free), it doesn’t resize to a big screen, and it doesn’t work with Google Earth–now that would be even cooler. But it’s fun, and I dig it.

  1. Grrrr… o meu Sony Vaio não me permite aceder ao acelerómetro do disco… o Safeguard funciona, mas não sei como ler essa informação para outras apps… alguém já descobriu isto?
