Python & Accelerometer tests...

Yesterday I was playing with Python and came up with two new "apps".

Both are pretty useless but I had fun creating them anyway and thought I'd share the results.

The first "App" is a simulated 3D (holographic type) view of a 2D image, using the accelerometer to determine rotation etc.

the second is a classic "Unlimited Bob" routine but this time controlled by the accelerometer instead of sine tables :)

the source code can be downloaded here LINK

TouchComic 1.6 Update

Hi All,

I decided to add some requested features into this this release.

The changes are:

1) "Kinetic scrolling"
2) Option to select drive AND FOLDER (comics can be stored on any drive AND FOLDER now)
3) Proper Icon instead of Python default (this wasn't requested)

To enable change one I had to remove the ability to "slide" pages, so to move to next or previous pages you should either double click to the left or right of the screen (5800/n97) or use the left or right keys (n97 only)

You can download it here:-

And don't forget to make sure you have the 1.9.7 run-times.

This release *SHOULD* still work fine on 5800 but I haven't tested.
