It's called MacSaber.

"MacSaber uses your Mac's sudden motion sensor to detect movements, fast and slow. As you move your laptop, MacSaber plays varying levels of Light Saber sound effects, from a waving sound to exciting saber crashes.
MacSaber 1.1 includes support for backlit keyboards. Various amounts of force create brighter flashes of the backlight."

Try it! It's hilarious.

Just what I want to do... swing my 3K notebook around like a light saber.

:::Visions of the whole Nintendo Wii fiasco entering my mind:::

Can you picture people sending in pictures of MBP's stuck into the wall? Or People with black eyes and dented heads from their friends chucking a MBP into them?

Hehe.

lol, obviously, but you can try gently moving it side to side while being extremely gentle (that's what I did). It's pretty cool, actually.

It was the first thing I downloaded when I got my Core Duo macbook 12 months ago, and I still have it just to show off every now and again. :eek:

There's a game or two I came across that uses the motion sensors.

You have to roll a ball down a hill by tilting your MBP left, right etc. Was tricky!
