SlapAMac
Switch workspaces on your macbook in a brutal way!

Overview

This toy application runs in background and switches workspaces as you slap screen by left or right side. Idea of using SMS (sudden motion sensor) as an input device has been there for a while and there are number of implementation floating around. In particular SlapAMac was inspired by Smackbook.

DO NOT hit laptop hard, you might harm it.

Requirements
