Want to put your Nexus One in a really different position when in use? Then this hack ought to be of interest to you – it will function as a gas pedal and will be used to control slot cars. The handset will use custom coded software to work in tandem with a computer using Adobe AIR. When connected, accelerometer data will be sent to the computer from the phone, letting the slot car know just how fast it is supposed to go thanks to assistance from a Phidgets motor controller. We would highly recommend you get a screen protector if the Nexus One is going to be subjected to such abuse.
