Lilt 1.0 for Mac portables
Jonathan Nathan has released a final version of Lilt 1.0, a unique tool for Macs that feature light and/or sudden motion sensors. Lilt utilizes the ambient light and sudden motion sensors found on recent portable Macs to trigger actions such as launching applications, files, or scripts. By launching a script Lilt can do some amazing things. "Wave your hand over the light sensors (located under the speaker grills) and play your next iTunes track. Tilt the computer back and put your machine to sleep. The possibilities are endless." It requires Mac SO X 10.4 or later and ships a Universal Binary for native performance on Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs. It also requires a Mac with light and/or sudden motion sensors. A 15-minute time limit can be removed by registering the software for $5.
