The make-your-device-a-Wiimote craze continues. Now is British Telecom researchers at Ipswich who, putting on their Mario hats and completely ignoring the fact that this technology already exists in other notebooks, have developed a Tablet PC with motion detectors to make it easier to use.

They say they want to use their combination of hardware and software to simplify the control of the computer and allow people with disabilities to turn pages just by moving it. In other words, the same things you can do with a MacBook today, but with an add-on thingy. Well chaps, call us back when you pull the light saber trick.
