MacBook HD Accelerometer + Window Manager = Great Hack

While this hack is currently available for MacBooks, I wouldn't be surprised to see someone implementing the idea in Linux or Windows. It's a cute trick to use the accelerometer used to protect laptop hard drives from sudden movement as a human interface, although I wonder if some game manufacturer has a previous patent for this.

Of course, desktops don't have accelerometers, but how long before some monitor maker adds one?
