Video: Accelerometer in a Dell Mini 9 Tablet Mod

The forum members at MyDellMini are busy tablet modders. A few weeks back, we saw a Dell Mini turned into a touchscreen tablet by Rob928. Now, there’s a new one from rock99rock sporting accelerometer-based screen rotation that looks really smooth in the video demo.


What’s really impressive is that he pulled it off with a $20 piece of hardware and two pieces of freeware. Love the innovating thinking on this. Full explanation of how he tied it all together is posted at the forum.
