the bluetooth ball


Peter showed me a very cool new device which he called the "bluetooth ball". It's basically a ball about the same size as a golf ball, but contains some fun integrated sensor and communication technology that allows it to act as a 6 degree of freedom motion sensor. It contains a MEMS accelerometer and bluetooth, and among other things "can operate as a free-hand personal computer mouse, compass, measuring tape, pedometer, or a 3D-object controller", according to the joint press release from Finland-based Ball-IT Oy and ST Micro.

Put that in your blogject and smoke it ;-)
