Description Sven Gothel 2013-08-05 17:15:58 CEST
Gyroscope / Accelerometer devices shall utilize NEWT w/ the directional acceleration
and in case of having even a gyroscope w/ the rotation as well (TBD!).

Initial implementation shall be done for Android and Windows8 devices and GNU/Linux if available.
GNU/Linux may be realized either via X11 or direct.

Accelerometer events on GNU/Linux:

  Sensors (Light, compass, accelerometer, gyro). These are all exposed under sysfs.
