UniMotion - Unified Motion detection for Apple portables
Version: 0.4.1UniMotion is a very useful library for detecting motion detection using the SMS sensor found in various Apple portables.
Operating System: Mac OS X
UniMotion is based on Motion with support for additional hardware coming from here. On top of all this, I've created a basic API and implemented probing so that you don't have to know what machine you're on.
While Motion has a BSD license, UniMotion is released under the LGPL. The original author and all contributors have given permission for this license change.
The intent is to ensure that fixes and improvements aren't hoarded by closed-source projects and to ensure that closed-source programs utilising UniMotion are able to support the newest hardware models, even without support from the vendor.
There is software out there that is SMS-aware but doesn't support my MacBook Pro. If everyone uses UniMotion, that will never happen again.
UniMotion allows you to read the output from the Apple Motion Sensor (aka. Sudden Motion Sensor, SMS, AMS) that has now become a standard hardware in all portable computers from Apple.
