I have the habit of forgetting to put my mobile phone in silence mode, when I go to class or to restaurant, so I thought, actually, my phone doesn't need to make noise when it's in my pants. So I made this little app, which uses the orientation sensor of the phone to detect if it's upside down in my pants (the way I put my phone in my pocket). So if it's upside down for a couple of ms, it goes to vibrate mode, but when I take it out of my pants, to put it on my desk or something, it will go back to normal mode, making noise when being called.
Yeah, I'm thinking about importing one, if that's possible. I live in Europe, so in best case, it'll take till january before I can get my hands on a real device. And I really can't wait to get my hands on a real device to start coding, well actually, to start to see if my programs really are usefull .
I'd like to import one as well so we are in the same boat. I hope that there will be some kind of developer program announced soon. I don't think that they will start an unfair challenge. With letting developers with hardware compete against developers without hardware.
Another from Europe joins the party
We'll have to do a trip to UK in November!
Do you know in which country the mobile operators (or shops) have to sell mobile phones untied to a plan by law?
And for the app, here's another idea:
If the mobile camera goes blind (you zip it into your pants/purse), it could switch to LOUD or whatever the profile you want.
It could be programmed to watch the camera in specific intervals, and/or in combination with the accelerometer.

I went to Germany in May to visit a friend and there's a lot of good beer there! hahaha
German Reinheitsgebot: "... it was the oldest food quality regulation in the world ..." +info Maybe we should move this thread to Off-Topic (or Chillout)
MrSnowFlake: (In order to reenter the topic) What do you think about the idea of adding the camera capabilities to change the ring profile?
Belgian Beer is the best! West-Vleteren, West-Malle, Grimbergen, Orval, Duvel, Jupiler, Stella, Cristal, ...
OT: Could you tell me what you imagine on doing with the camera?
You mean, when the camera is dark? Heh, haven't thought about that yet . But that could work, tough it'll use a lot more battery power. On the plus side, the phone will be silent at night .
