You've all seen the transparent desktop pictures. All of you might've seen this as well but I'll post it anyway because it takes the prize.

That's pretty awesome. For those who are curious, the PowerBooks and iBooks come with a sudden motion sensor. It's original design was to figure out if the computer is falling so it can turn off the hard drives. It's just an accelerometer in 3-dimensions However, Apple added an API to access it, and it can produce some pretty good info on the moving computer.

The coolest/stupidest app to make use of this though, is MacSaber:
