A month ago we reported about the BT Balance System, which gives notebooks Wii like controls.

The BBC published a video hosted by Click's (BBC Flagship Technology Program) Spencer Kelly demonstrating the BT Balance System. See it below.

The device aimed at enabling people with disabilities to better interact with computers works pretty well. The video clip also shows the HTC Advantage phone with the cool magnetic attachable keypoard. Spencer Kelly shows though that the magnet is not very strong and you should only use the device on a table.

BT Balance uses microchip called an accelerometer and software to enable users to read through books or documents by just flip the Tablet PC. This haptic interface is similar to controlling the Nintendo Wii.
The BT Balance System is still a research project and not ready for commercialization.
