    I just saw this photo in a Chinese apple forum, someone posted it, it is a screensaver, I think Mac only has sudden motion sensor or accelerometer to detect shock in order to protect hard drive, but...

    Yes, it's possible for apps to access the SMS as an accelerometer.

    No one remembers MacSaber?

    C'mon, it's a lightsaber! (I guess the joke is that you could buy a very high-quality lightsaber replica for the cost of an MBP...)

    Search for "Something Fishy" screensaver. There are Mac and PC versions. There is a free version with some pop-ups or you can register it for $12.95 and add some features.
