Google Maps Table Tilt Control Solution

One of my most favorite forum members at Search Engine Roundtable forums posted a thread named google table nah.. google tilt. In that thread he links to a blog post describing this new Google Maps hack that allows you to pick up your laptop, tilt it up, down, left and right and the map moves in that direction. Very cool stuff. It is also funny how yesterday we reported on a Table Top Touch & Command Google Earth Solution.

Another day, another hack. Here's a demo that controls Google Maps using ThinkPad Hard Drive Active Protection sensor. You tilt your ThinkPad and Google Maps roll over. Pretty cool.

The video is at YouTube and it is named Google Maps ThinkPad Controller. I have embedded the video in the extended entry portion if you would like to view it here.
