The world will be a little less interesting with Steve Jobs gone. He was one of the people who had truly changed the world, how we percieve it, and how we live in it. He and Steve Wozniak literally created the personal computing industry in that famous garage in California.
As applications engineers supporting ADI’s compact, low-cost, gravity-sensitive iMEMs accelerometers, we get to hear lots of creative ideas about how to employ accelerometers in useful ways; but sometimes the suggestions violate physical laws! We’ve rated some of these ideas on an informal scale, from “real” to “dream land”:
