I tought many times (cycling around) that we could use the
accelerometers to measure the vibrations and accelerations of the
bike.. we even could use this data to automatically set the tipe of
street for openstreetmap, for example many vibrations means nearly
always a dirty road, while little vibrations (and high speed) often
means asfalt..
