    Came across this game & thought it might be of some interest. I know the occasional 'Accelerometer Games List' thread appears on the forum but couldn't see this game listed (maybe it's fairly new).

    www.balance-game.com

    It's actually quite fun & looks fairly polished too.

    :cool:

    Only other accelerometer apps I've found that are vaguely entertaining are Tunnel and MacSaber.

    Haha, tried it a bit and its actually hillarious.

    Tilting around my macbookpro like crazy here.

    I had to invert the x-axis tho to make it act normally.

    Firefox 3.6 Accelerometer

    You might have read that Firefox 3.6 will have access to the accelerometer available in MacBooks and MacBook Pros and it is true! You can download the Firefox 3.6 beta release and then test it out yourself.

    I have created a javascript labyrinth game for firefox to test it.

    To see the kind of thing you can do with Firefox 3.6 and the accelerometer, check out the video of me using my gravity test

    Let me know what you think :)

    (The source code is also on github :) )
