Tilt sensor: playing up the MacBook's strengths

Apple decided to outfit their newest portable, the MacBook, with "vampire video" thereby eliminating any chance of turning that thing into a serious BootCamping gamestation on the go. Sure, it'll run some of your older games swimmingly; F.E.A.R. 2 with 4x FSAA, eh, notsomuch. So, like Nintendo's zagging Wii controller, why not bypass the hobbled graphics system and exploit what the MacBook can offer: namely, an accelerometer.

Installed to detect if the computer's falling and park the hard drive accordingly, this clever gamer used ams2hid coupled with Neverball to make the modern-day equivalent of the wooden labyrinth. Now how about the Mac Book Pro's light-sensor and a GBA emulator for some Boktai action?
