Phil Zakielarz, who was a student at France Telecom’s Boston Labs showed his gestural phone a few minutes ago. Basically, he’s mounted an accelerometer and microcontroller on a cellphone, and written some browser based Java code to respond to those gestures. It was cool. Jump to a movie website, and then tilt the phone from side to side to scroll through the available listings.
Phil got a lot of applause when he flipped the phone over, and showed the duct tape holding the added electronics on to the phone.
