I just streamed /dev/accelerometer-top data over wifi and generated fake
keypresses on my desktop. At least here it is really not something you
can enjoy. The accelerometer reports orientation of the phone only when
it is not moving. When you move the phone it will of course be skewed by
the acceleration.
