Gers motion switch- basics

Ger has been building a special movement triggered switch which is used in conjunction with an Arduino and PhysPut. Ger is close to finishing a new version of Physput which we will see over the next few weeks. The switch he has built above and demonstrated above is intended to be used in conjunction with a switch-operated universal remote control (this is a specialised piece of assistive technology) . We use a Sparkfun 5DOF gyro and accelerometer board to provide a set of movement signals which are processed to yield a switching signal which drives the universal remote control. In this example Physput is not required.
