Use coupon code MCU2009-06 when checking out ...

Somehow I want to make a Dick Tracy joke at this point ...

Oh man, I'm forwarding this to my loving family who have money and would like to buy me Christmas presents. (Why they would do that, I don't know.)

I got to thinking how cool it might be to use two of these for air
drumming or air guitar (could probably convert accelerations into
positions and from there determine which drum is being hit or
approximately where you are on the fret-board, power-chord-wise).
Even with just one, air trombone might be a possibility.

Or imagine putting one one each wrist and each ankle of your favorite
crumper and converting the accelerations into music (one crumper +
three axes * four watches = infinite possibilities)

Out of the box, it apparently has an "air-mouse" ability, so you can
control your Windows machine from a safe distance.

Looks like it's possible to get a CC430 development kit if you want to
make peripheral devices that can talk to the watch:

Not cheap and not yet available though
