SmackEdit – beat your Mac – (using Mac notebook motion sensor) 18 June 2006Posted by David Wilson in General.
Remember type writers? Mechanical devices for printing letters on a page.
These devices had a leaver on the carridge that you would hit to force the page to move up one line of type and then move the carridge back to the beginning of the page. And all this with the “ding” just as you reached the end of the line.
Oh well, what come aound goes aound… and now that’s been emulated on a MacBook Pro (or any Mac with motion sensor) – you simply “hit”you Mac when it’s reached the end of the line. You’ll hear that ding and the carridge returning to the begging of the next line. [it will actually work on any Mac – only for the hit effect you will need the motion sensor).
