The Force is with me (or at least, my MacBook)

Stunning! There can be no higher purpose to software!

Just as I was wondering why I’d bothered spending cash on a MacBookPro for minimal speed improvements, this guy has taken advantage of the inbuilt motion sensor and commandeered it to trigger light-sabresque sound as you move the laptop around:

Introducing MacSaber 1.0 Beta. Using your Mac’s sudden motion sensor, this software turns your computer into a Jedi weapon almost worthy of taking on the real thing by making authentic lightsaber sound effects. It senses speed for the lightsaber movement sounds and acceleration for different levels of striking sounds.

Should be fun getting through airport security with this enabled…

“You did not hear that noise”
“He is a service droid”
“Go about your business”.
