This is pretty cool. The guy took the accelerometer in hard drives and used it as a sensor to detect slaps on the laptop. Then, he hooked it up to a desktop manager so that he can change virtual desktops by slapping his laptop on the left or on the right.

This is pretty cool by the sheer fact that he combined things that weren’t meant to be used together for something novel. And most of all, the user interface MAKES SENSE.

I too want the capability, but I’d have to build my own accelerometer from the USB drive. Do you think people will want them?
