You can pack all the gyroscopes, accelerometers and other motion-detecting sensors you want in your desktop — it’s still not going to be any good at playing Eliminate: Gun Range. That’s the motivation behind developer Arik Poznanski’s latest release. He has created a driver enabling his Windows Phone 7 to transmit its accelerometer data back to his Windows 7 desktop in real time. Currently the driver’s not good for much beyond a tech demo, but given the different ways people have hacked their Wiimotes, it won’t be long before homebrewed killer apps start appearing — perhaps paired up with a little Kinect wizardry. If you’re looking to get started at home, hit the source link below for more details.
