I've written a program that sends accelerometer data to ppjoy virtual joystick 1. It lets you control games by tilting your thinkpad.
You'll need to download and set up ppjoy (google it) - I used version 0.8.4.5 on win 7.
My files are here:http://rapidshare.com/files/414368643/aps_ppjoy.zip
In the .zip file, there's an exe called aps2ppjoy.exe that will send the data to ppjoy. It comes up as a blank console window. To check if it's working, calibrate the ppjoy virtual joystick (must be number 1!) using the windows joystick calibration tool. Try looking/searching for gamepad in the control panel.
It works - but it's dirty. Uses about 10% of CPU on my x61 tablet. Until someone with more knowledge than me can write a proper HID driver for the accelerometer, it's the best we've got.
UPDATE: I've modified the code to get cpu usage <1%, but since nobody's download or posted, I can't be bothered to put it in rapidshare. If you want it, PM me.
UPDATE: I've had a few PMs now, so here's the linkhttp://rapidshare.com/files/418231223/a ... _sleep.exe
I'm not a pro and it tickles me pink to know that people are using my work, so please post and let me know how you go.
