You can pack all the gyroscopes, accelerometers and other motion-detecting sensors you want in your desktop -- it's still not going to be any good at playing Eliminate: Gun Range
. That's the motivation behind developer Arik Poznanski's latest release. He has created a driver enabling his Windows Phone 7
to transmit its accelerometer data back to his Windows 7
desktop in real time. Currently the driver's not good for much beyond a tech demo, but given the different ways people have hacked their Wiimotes
, it won't be long before homebrewed killer apps start appearing -- perhaps paired up with a little Kinect
wizardry. If you're looking to get started at home, hit the source link below for more details.
