Apple's newest line of Powerbook notebooks has a feature similar to IBM's "airbag" for notebooks, preventing data loss when the computer drops on the floor. The service uses an accelerometer dubbed the "sudden motion sensor" to notice sudden movements, allowing it to park the head safely on the hard drive before it hits the floor
Thanks to scripts, users and developers can tap in this feature. The blog interconnected.org points to a few fun ways that users can do this.
By far the most appealing use of this feature might very well be the ability to control applications by moving the machine forward or backward. The bloggers used this to skip their iTunes music players to the next or previous track on a playlist.
It might not be the most useful application in everyday life, but it sure is making use of the sudden motion sensor in a creative way.
